Core Week branded photo of economists during a break at CORE Week

Mon., Sept. 26, 2022 - Fri., Sept. 30, 2022

CORE Week, featuring the Macro-Development Insights Conference and the Advances in Applied Macro-Econometrics Conference

The Collaboration of Research Economists (CORE) model combines frontier research and an innovative delivery method to advance collaboration within the economics profession.

The CORE model consists of eight CORE Weeks per year. During each week, visiting economists from a range of disciplines will join with Richmond Fed economists for seminars, conferences, and formal and informal networking and collaboration — all with an eye toward advancing economic research.
