The CEPR Network on Household Finance and EDHEC are organising the Sixth European Workshop on Household Finance on 14-16 April 2021 with the support of the Think Forward Initiative (TFI). The objective of this workshop is to host presentations and foster interaction between Senior and Junior Researchers working in the area of household finance. The workshop will include state-of-the-art research on household financial behaviour and on how this is influenced by other choices, government policies, and the overall economic environment. The research workshop will include a CEPR-TFI event on “Finance and Inequality”, organised by Laurent Calvet (EDHEC and CEPR) on Wednesday 14 April 2021.

We solicit papers in the following areas, but other related areas may also be considered:
 
• Patterns of asset allocation and debt behaviour over the life cycle
• Financing retirement and the demographic transition
• Consumer indebtedness, financial distress and default decisions
• Behavioural approaches to household finances
• Financial literacy and financial education programmes
• Trust, subjective expectations, pessimism, and financial decisions
• International comparisons of household finances using micro-data
• Cognitive and genetic studies on individual financial performance
• Financial advice and legal protection of investors and borrowers
• The impact of technology on household financial behaviour
 
The organisers encourage submissions from PhD students in household finance. Students must apply online stating that they are a PhD student and supply their CV. Students should note that, from 2020 on, the best student paper prize will only be awarded once a year at the Household Finance Conference which takes place every Autumn. So, students who want their paper to be considered for the prize should submit it to the Autumn conference, but they are welcome to submit another paper to the Spring workshop.

Workshop Venue
We hope the workshop can take place physically on the premises of EDHEC. However, due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 situation and travel restrictions, the workshop may become a hybrid workshop or a completely virtual workshop depending on the situation closer to the time of the workshop.
