2 Introduction

The I.S.E.O Institute is extremely honoured to feature Robert Engle (Nobel Laureate in Economics 2003), Robert Merton (Nobel Laureate in Economics 1997) and Michael Spence (Nobel Laureate in Economics 2001) as lecturers for the 15th edition of the I.S.E.O Summer School. The panel will be further enriched by the presence of additional international economists, such as Carlo Cottarelli (Bocconi University, former Executive Director at the IMF Board), Christian Dustmann (University College London), Emanuele Ferragina (Sciences Po), Gael Giraud (University of Paris 1-Sorbonne Economic Center), Kamiar Mohaddes (Cambridge University) and Andrés Rodriguez Pose (London School of Economics).

The I.S.E.O Summer School is an international summer course focused on the most topical economic discussion. The macro title chosen for the 2018 edition is "Challenges and Opportunities in a Shifting Global Economy". The programme will cover all the major aspects related to international economy: global market changes and trends, the rapid growth of emerging and developing economies, world trade and its regulation, fiscal stability as well as labour issues and many other themes connected to the most topical debate.

Nationalities 2017

As from the very first edition in 2004, the course will gather a large number of graduate students in Economics coming from the most important faculties in the world to participate to this multicultural debate. That's one of the most appreciated peculiarity of the course: the unique multiethnic background.

The 15th edition of the I.S.E.O Summer School will take place from Thursday the 21st to Thursday the 30th June 2018. For the first time, the course will last ten days rather than a week. It will be based on a fair combination of lectures, debates and discussion on one hand, and trips and excursion into the most beautiful corners of Northern Italy on the other. Classes will be structured so to stimulate discussion among the full group of participants, contributing to the debate with their own academic background.

As usual, the course will be settled in Iseo, a peaceful village facing the homonymous lake (Iseo lake) in Northern Italy, not too far from Milan. Classes and participants' accomodation are guested by a four star hotel on the lake, namely the Iseolago hotel

For further general information about the history and the experience of the Summer School you can visit the dedicated web page, the photogallery (a wide selection of the most picturesque moments of past editions) and especially the videogallery (official video and clips made by participants in previous years with speakers' and students' comments).

3 Your lecture

The I.S.E.O Institute will also give a few participants the unique chance to present their research in front of Nobel Laureates and the whole group of students. Participants can apply to the "Your lecture" session by sending their papers to the valuating committee, which will select winners according to the interest of their work and the coherence of their research compared to the main theme of the Summer School. This opportunity is optional and papers can be sent at a later time, after having applied to the I.S.E.O Summer School.

4 Application procedure

In order to be eligible for the Summer School, applicants have to be graduate students (or former graduate students) in Economics or Social Sciences with a strong academic background in the field.

Curriculum vitae and students' motivation are among the requirements at the base of the participants selection.

In order to apply, students simply have to fill in an application form downloadable at the bottom of this web page.

The application form should be sent via email together with a personal cv and a picture by the 28th April 2018 to the Summer School Secretariat: summerschool@istiseo.org. Early application is highly encouraged since enrolment is limited.

5 Fee and Scholarships

The full fee amounts to € 2.700,00. However every year the I.S.E.O Institute awards talented applicants with partial scholarships (raised among local companies and industries; full scholarships are not available ) amounting to 1.500 Euro. Therefore awarded students have to pay only for the remaining part of the fee, namely, 1.200 Euro. Applying to the scholarship is really easy: participants just have to state it in the application form.

The fee, which must be paid by the 18th of May 2018, includes:

  • participation to the one week course;
  • reading materials sent via email;
  • accomodation at the 4 star Iseolago hotel (21-30 June 2018) for a total of 9 nights with free access to swimming pools and sport facilities;

  • participation to the gala dinner with Nobels, sponsors and institutions;
  • participation to local trips organized during the week to discover Northern Italy;
  • local transportation within the area;
