Past Conference

Economist engaging a speaker at CORE Week
Mon., July 31, 2023 - Fri., Aug. 4, 2023

CORE Week, featuring the Climate Economics 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.  

Video is temporarily unavailable.
