ERIC welcomes Ph.D. students to submit working papers or preliminary drafts of one of their Ph.D. essays to the doctoral consortium that took place on April 10th, 2019 at the University of Hohenheim in Stuttgart, Germany. Presentations are 20 minutes, followed by 15 minutes of open questions and discussion. Ph.D. students accepted to the doctoral consortium are also invited to stay for the main conference.
