Welcome to Tartu

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


The conference was initially scheduled to take place on June 8-9, 2020 in Tartu, Estonia. However, due to the current uncertain COVID-19 situation in Europe the organizers have made the decision to postpone the conference by one year. The new tentative dates are June 7-8, 2021, and the conference is again going to take place in Tartu. The formal announcement of the new conference and the call for papers are going to be sent out later this year, most likely already in September.

Award for the best paper presented by a PhD student

There will be an award in the sum of EUR 500 for the best paper presented by a PhD student. The candidates for the award are not limited to the Baltic region (neither in terms of institution nor nationality), but the following rules apply:

  • paper is presented at the conference
  • all authors of the paper are doctoral students or researchers having defended their thesis no earlier than in 2020.
