Warwick Economics Summit

What is WES?

The Warwick Economics Summit is one of the largest student-run academic conferences in Europe. Now in its 20th year, our goal is to set up a community for university students to engage in multidisciplinary discussions with well-renowned professionals from all areas of the social sciences.

The summit weekend involves standalone speeches, panel discussions and seminars in which students from around the world gather to address the wider global issues of today.

Over the past 19 years we have invited 7 Nobel Laureates including John Nash and George Akerlof, well-renowned academics and central bankers such as Stanley Fisher and Professor John B.Taylor and other notable speakers like Zanny Minton Beddoes the editor-in-chief of The Economist.

What is new for WES2021

For the 20th edition of the summit, WES will be going virtual and the event will be hosted for free. We will be able to welcome over 1000 students from around the world and the event will also be open to 16-18 year old students interested in studying the social sciences for their undergraduate degree.
