STEG Annual Conference 2021


Meeting Code: 
The research programme on Structural Transformation and Economic Growth (STEG), led by the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) is inviting you to attend its first annual conference on 13-15 January 2021, starting at 2pm GMT each day. This conference will fall near the close of STEG’s first (inception) year. The conference papers will help define the current research frontiers in the area of structural transformation and economic growth. STEG seeks to advance these frontiers over the next four years, through a programme of competitive research funding and academic community building. We expect the first funding calls to be issued in Spring 2021.
STEG’s objective is to build a body of research and evidence that will inform policy in low-income countries; we consequently seek papers that have clear relevance to this goal.

The conference will be hosted online via Zoom, to register your attendance please click here and the latest programme is available on this link
In addition to full-length presentations, the conference will include one or more (virtual) sessions of short presentations, as a way to highlight the diversity of research in the field and to offer more opportunities for early-career researchers and scholars representing a wide range of institutions and geographies.
