Zeuthen Lectures

In 1996, the department started a series of lectures, the Zeuthen Lectures, named after Frederik Zeuthen, the well-known Danish professor of economics at the University of Copenhagen from 1930 to 1958.

Zeuthen Lectures

Zeuthen Lectures invites an internationally recognized researcher every second year who gives three lectures on ground-breaking new economic research. On the same occasion, a Zeuthen Workshop is organized, where younger economists present and discuss their research within the subject of this year's Zeuthen Lectures.

The lectures are subsequently made available in book form through the "Zeuthen Lectures Book Series" published by MIT Press.
