This workshop is an opportunity for doctoral students and junior researchers with an interest in experimental development economics to share their ongoing work and receive critical feedback. This event is organized by NOVAFRICA doctoral students and attended by NOVAFRICA faculty members.

We are looking for contributions on the broad theme of experiments in development economics. We welcome complete papers as well as early-stage projects with at least a paper draft or a substantially developed research proposal.

It will be an excellent opportunity to receive feedback on your work and get to know international colleagues working on related topics. All submissions will be evaluated by a scientific committee, consisting of NOVAFRICA doctoral students.
