The Athens University of Economics and Business is organizing the 45th Annual Conference of the European Association for Research in Industrial Economics, in collaboration with the Foundation for Economic and Industrial Research. We look forward to welcoming you to Athens for EARIE 2018. The conference will take place 31 August - 2 September 2018.

EARIE annual conference 

The EARIE Annual Conference provides a yearly platform for delegates and members to present and discuss the latest research in Industrial Economics. The conference attracts more than 400 participants each year from Europe and other parts of the world. EARIE 2018 will take place at the campus of the Hellenic American Educational Foundation's Athens College, at Psychico, north of the center of Athens (see map).


Athens is the capital and largest city of Greece. With a history spanning over 3,400 years, Athens is one of the world's oldest cities. A center for the arts, learning and philosophy, as well as a great political power in the ancient world, Athens is widely regarded as the “cradle of Western civilization” and the “birthplace of democracy”, reflecting the cultural and political impact of Classical Greece on the modern West. Today, Athens is one of the largest cosmopolitan metropoles in Europe and central to the economic, political and cultural life in Greece.

Conference programme 

The EARIE 2018 conference programme will consist of contributed and invited sessions. The EARIE 2018 Scientific Committee is chaired by Paul Heidhues (DICE, Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf).
