This year we celebrate the tenth edition of the Netherlands Economists Day! The event will take place in The Hague, on the campus of Leiden University. A large part of the day is in Dutch, but most of the Academic sessions as well as the Tinbergen Lecture by Armin Falk will be in English. Feel free to join us. 

The event is only accessible for members of the economic association KVS. Attendees can become a member of the KVS during the sign-up process.

We hope to organize the event in person in The Hague. However, if the situation changes and large events are no longer allowed, the event will take place online using the software Zoom. You are then not entitled to a refund of your ticket and KVS membership/ESB subscription.

Announcing Keynote Speaker:

Armin Falk is Professor of Economics at the University of Bonn and CEO of the Behavior and Inequality Research Institute (briq). He is a leading behavioral economist who is known for his studies on the influence of trust and justice in labour markets. In recent years, he studied the sources of societal and economic inequality. Armin Falk was awarded two ERC grants and has won many awards including the Gossen Prize in 2008, the Leibniz Prize in 2009 and the Yrjö Jahnsson Award in 2011. During the Tinbergen lecture, Armin Falk will discuss his recent paper for which he surveyed almost 10.000 economists worldwide. Are economists answering the most relevant questions? Are we using the best methods available? And do researchers have enough freedom and incentives to answer the most important questions in the best way possible?
