Organizers & Partners

CEST is an association of students and young scholars working on a variety of research fields from different universities in Europe. Our mission is two-fold: on the one hand, we propose to bring young scholars closer to academic research, promoting opportunities of involvement and exploration at graduate and undergraduate level; in addition, we aim to foster dialogue between academic thinking and public debate, stimulating the critical analysis of cultural products of major interest. We do this through a model based on the close interdependence among various fields of research, without excluding any discipline. Mixing the stature of well-known cultural figures with the passion of young researchers, combining ability and innovation, is the way we create and organise opportunities for study and debate, sharing with the public and readers the experience of a world to be interpreted by the categories of scientific research.

In collaboration with:

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is an international organisation that works to build better policies for better lives. The goal is to shape policies that foster prosperity, equality, opportunity and well-being for all. The New Approaches to Economic Challenges (NAEC) initiative develops a systemic perspective on interconnected challenges with strategic partners, identifies the analytical and policy tools needed to understand them, and crafts the narratives best able to convey them to policymakers.

Through the Young Scholars Initiative (YSI), INET provides support to students, young professionals, or others who embrace new and critical ways of thinking about the economy. YSI fosters conversation among those who wish to engage with new economic thinking and connects young scholars to the Institute’s vast network of economists. Founded in the wake of the financial crisis in 2009, the Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET) is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization devoted to developing and sharing the ideas that can repair our broken economy and create a more equal, prosperous, and just society.
