Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Summer School at the University of Cambridge

Event Date

Sloan Foundation Logo

The Sloan-Cambridge Mesoeconomics Programme will bring together young researchers to access frontier leading work from world experts, with the intention that they utilise the tools and collaborations to propel this emerging field of economics.

The Summer School aims to develop an international community of mesoeconomics researchers and foster connections across relevant disciplines among established and new researchers. 

Mesoeconomics is a new approach to answering questions about the economy and economic policy that necessitates a focus on the connections between microeconomic units.

Teaching Programme

Areas addressed will include micro and macro baseline models of production networks with applications to the network origins of business cycles, market power and antitrust in networked markets, inflation, mark-ups and pricing pass-through in production networks, networked international trade and global economic stability, and systemic risk in financial networks.

The summer school aims to blend cross-field approaches to these areas, drawing material from both microeconomic and macroeconomic theory while also emphasizing their empirical content.

International Conference

Summer school students are invited to stay on to attend the Alfred P. Sloan and Janeway Institute International Conference on the same topics immediately after the summer school.
