UCL Economics hosts its second annual undergraduate research conference, Explore Econ, on March 16, 2016. This conference showcases independent work done by students in all three years of the undergraduate programme, much of it outside of the curriculum. First year students will be represented through the First Year Challenge, a multimedia project, and a small group of first year students will be making a film about economics under the auspices of Explore Econ. Among other highlights for this year are work shadow prizes sponsored by the Bank of England, DeutscheBank and the Competition and Markets Authority, and the presence of Sharon White as keynote speaker.

Panel Judges:

Janet Henry, Global Chief Economist, HSBC
Gill Hammond, Director of the Centre for Central Banking Studies, Bank of England
Adam Lyons, Economics Advisor, Europe Group, Department for International Development, (DfiD, UK Government)
Professor Stephen Smith, Deputy Head of Department of Economics, UCL
