CERGE-EI Alumni Event in London

23 March, 2015

Last Monday, CERGE-EI co-organized a panel discussion with the Legatum Institute and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development in London at the Legatum Institute's Mayfair headquarters. Jan Švejnar served as a panelist and a number of CERGE-EI's UK alumni were in attendance. The topic of the panel discussion was "The Shadow Economy - Impact on Innovation, East and West".

CERGE-EI PhD student Jakub Matějů, winner of the Alumni Award for the Best Student Paper, won a trip to the event. You can read his reflections on our blog.

We'd like to thank London-based alumni Pavel Dvořák and Jan Novotný and CERGE-EI Foundation board member Susan Walton for their extraordinary efforts to organize the event.
