Annual Swiss Doctoral Workshop in Finance
Each year in June, FINRISK and Swiss Finance Institute jointly organize an annual research workshop bringing together the best doctoral students and faculty from Swiss Universities with two distinguished professors from the USA.
The Workshop is an important setting for our doctoral students to present "work in progress" and gain valuable
feedback from fellow students and from senior international researchers within the FINRISK research community.
In addition to the scheduled presentations, students arrange meetings with senior academics to further discuss their research in an informal academic atmosphere.
At the workshop, students not only present their own work, but are also encouraged to give a formal 5-minute discussion of one other paper.
A prize is awarded for the best research paper presented, and also for the "best discussant" of a fellow students research. The award ceremony takes place at the Swiss Finance Institute Annual Meeting.
The Doctoral Workshop takes place at Study Center Gerzensee, near Bern. It is sponsored by the Swiss National Banks Study Center Gerzensee Foundation,
the Swiss Finance Institute and the Swiss National Science Foundation through the ProDoc "PhD in Finance".
