Academic Conferences

One of the CESifo Group’s main activities is the organisation of academic conferences and events. The Ifo Institute holds the largest number of annual conferences in economics in Germany.

The conferences hosted by CESifo GmbH can be divided into two categories: annual area conferences relating to the individual areas of the CESifo Research Network, and conferences initiated and supported by network members that deal with topical issues in the field of economic research. These events include the CESifo Venice Summer Institute. The Ifo Institute and Ifo Dresden also organise annual workshops for junior economists.
