We are writing to invite you to submit a paper or to express your interest in attending CEPR's European Research Workshop in International Trade (ERWIT) 2021, to be held in Milan from 20 to 22 October 2021, organised in cooperation with Università degli Studi di Milano, Centro Studi Luca d'Agliano, the Baffi Carefin Centre of Bocconi University and the Horizon 2020 MICROPROD Project. Papers are invited on any trade-related issues.


ERWIT is an annual workshop that brings together international economists from across Europe and key researchers from outside the region. The workshop disseminates the findings of recent research on international trade, and presentations often involve exploratory rather than finished papers. It provides a unique opportunity to discuss trade-related research in a relaxed atmosphere. ERWIT 2020 took place virtually last year and the video recordings from ERWIT 2020 are available to watch on the following Youtube playlist.

The organisers hope that ERWIT 2021 can take place physically in Milan but will continue to monitor the situation. However, due to the uncertainty of COVID-19 and travel restrictions, the workshop may become a hybrid workshop or a completely virtual workshop depending on the situation closer to the time.

If the workshop can take place physically, it will run for 3 full days from Wednesday 20 October until Friday 22 October (with arrival on Tuesday 19 October). The afternoon of Friday 22 October will be dedicated to the MICROPROD Project Conference. CEPR and the local organisers will offer some funding for travel and accommodation, but we cannot guarantee funding for all participants. If you have alternative research travel funding at your disposal, we encourage you to indicate this on your reply form. This will help fund travel for participants who do not have other sources of funding, young researchers in particular. Where funding is provided for travel costs, this will be in accordance with the CEPR Travel Guidelines which will be circulated at a later date. We recommend that you hold off making any travel arrangements until further information has been given.

Kindly note that it will not be possible to accept all applications to attend the event. At this stage, we would thus like you to simply confirm your interest in attending the meeting and indicate whether or not you wish to present a paper. When selecting papers, some preference will be given to researchers who have not presented at ERWIT recently, although we still encourage everyone to apply.

Authors who are CEPR-affiliated or already have a CEPR online profile can upload their submission on https://portal.cepr.org/european-research-workshop-international-trade-erwit-2021. If you do not have a CEPR online profile, please create a new profile here https://portal.cepr.org/user/register and then click on the registration link above. The deadline for submissions is 18:00 (BST) on Sunday 2 May 2021.
