Department of Economics, University of Copenhagen > Zeuthen Lectures
In 1996 the department launched the Zeuthen Lectures in honour of Frederik Zeuthen, the renowned Danish Professor in Economics at the University of Copenhagen from 1930 to 1958.
The Zeuthen Lectures feature an internationally distinguished scholar giving three lectures on new ground-breaking economic subjects. At the same time, a Zeuthen Workshop is organized, where young researchers present and discuss their recent research within the subject of the year's Zeuthen Lectures.
The lectures are subsequently made available to the international audience through the "Zeuthen Lectures Book Series" published by MIT Press.
