The executive director of the IDEA think-tank Daniel Münich will speak about the contribution of the economists in the fight against the covid-19 epidemic at The Week of Science and Technology Festival. His online talk entitled 'Economic Decathlon', takes place on Wednesday, November 4 at 10:00.

Daniel Münich will introduce the #IDEAantiCOVID19 project. Several dozens of CERGE-EI-related researchers including our students and graduates were involved in this initiative. The aim was to provide expert ideas and recommendations to mitigate the negative economic effects caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

More than 20 recommendations from different fields have been published since this project started in March.

The Week of Science and Technology is the most extensive science festival in the Czech Republic. The 2020 Week of Science and Technology will run from 2-8 November 2020. Most of the events are taking place online. The full program is available here.
