CEPR-VDEV Webinars is an online seminar series, featuring invited speakers in development economics. It was set up in the spring semester of 2020 as the VDEV webinar to keep engaged with research (and each other!) while we were stuck at home – and now continues with support from CEPR.

Now organized by CEPR, the University of Geneva (UniGe), the Barcelona Graduate School of Economics (Barcelona GSE), Paris School of Economics (PSE) and Stockholm School of Economics, sessions will take place on Tuesdays at 5pm CEST, 4pm BST, 11am EST, 8am PST, and last for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Videos are also posted on YouTube.
