Welcome to Tartu

The 3rd annual conference of the Baltic Economic Association is hosted by the University of Tartu (Estonia).


The conference was initially to take place on June 8-9, 2020 in Tartu, Estonia. However, due to the COVID-19 situation in Europe and elsewehere the conference taking place at that time is highly doubtful, to say the least. The situation is very unpredictable and changes very quickly - we are currently following the advise of our local health authorities in Estonia, but this also is very fluid. The Baltic Economic Association Board has agreed to postpone the final decision about the conference at least till the middle of the April. Until then please do not plan your travel to Tartu in June 2020.
