Call For Applications
The retreat is open to early career female economists with positions (post-doctoral fellows, lecturers, researchers and assistant professors) at academic and research institutions and who obtained their PhDs in 2010-2015 (we will also consider applicants who expect to obtain their PhD at a later date but who have already secured a position for the next academic year at a different institution from their PhD granting one).

The attendees will participate in a series of innovative discussions organized as panels and as smaller groups run by senior mentors. The discussions will cover topics such as publishing, writing successful grant applications, networking and career planning, with attention to the unique challenges that women may face at different stages of their careers. The small group sessions will focus on participants’ research papers and provide an opportunity for detailed comment and feed-back from senior mentors in their field. There will also be many opportunities for the attendees to socialise with each other and their mentors during this event.

There will be an application process and you will be asked to submit an abstract of your paper during the application process.

Dates and Location
The retreat will begin at 2pm on Sunday August 23 at the University of Mannheim and conclude at lunchtime on Monday August 24, just before the start of EEA Mannheim 2015. All details will be given out on acceptance of application.

What's Included?
The retreat is not subject to a registration fee. There will be presentations from top female economists during the afternoon of day 1 while day 2 will focus on smaller group sessions. There will be a networking reception on the evening of Sunday August 23.

The EEA central office relies on the help of local organizers and this year it thanks a number of economists from the department of economics at the University of Mannheim - Michèle Tertilt, Katja Kaufmann, Anna Raute and Galina Zudenkova, and PhD students Anna Hammerschmid  and Xue Zhang - for the onsite support received. 
The co-chairs of this year's Retreat are Raffaella Giacomini and Michèle Tertilt.

Full information on the DFG Priority Programme 1764 can be found here and information on the DFG Priority Programme 1578 can be found here.
