FSR Young Researcher Seminar, 2nd edition: Call for papers on Electricity Market Design and Electricity Grid Regulation

Deadline extended! Submit your paper by the 30th of April 2018

The FSR strongly engages in contributing to the development of the next generation of researchers in Europe. After accomplishing a very successful first edition in 2017, we are now launching the second edition of the 2-day Young Researcher Seminar. It will be hosted on the 3rd and 4th of July 2018 in Florence covering the following two topics:

  • Electricity Market Design (Day 1)
  • Electricity Grid Regulation (Day 2)

On both days, the morning session will be dedicated to a panel debate with experts coming from academia, industry and regulatory authorities; while the afternoon sessions will offer the selected young researchers the opportunity to present their papers and to receive a thorough feedback.

The seminar is organised under the scientific supervision of:

  • Jean-Michel Glachant | Florence School of Regulation at RSCAS (EUI)
  • Leonardo Meeus | Vlerick Business School and Florence School of Regulation at RSCAS (EUI)


Call for papers

For the second edition of the Young Researcher Seminar, the Florence School of Regulation is inviting young researchers in the field of electricity market design and electricity grids regulation to submit their working papers. The papers cannot be already published in scientific journals. The researchers must be Ph.D. candidates or young post-doctoral researchers.
