ESCoE Newsletter December 2020

As 2020 draws to a close we wish you a happy holiday season and thank you for your engagement with ESCoE this year.

The use of online platforms in response to the pandemic has allowed us to reach new audiences around the world and connect and engage with more people from the economic measurement community than ever before. The Economic Measurement Webinar series we initiated back in May proved popular. You can read in this newsletter about the new series delivered this Autumn. You can also find links to the interviews that we conducted with keynote speakers during the annual ESCoE Conference on Economic Measurement 2020, which was held on a bespoke virtual platform.

With continuing uncertainty about the impacts of COVID-19 through into 2021, we have decided that our annual conference in May 2021 will now also be held online. It was originally due to be held at the University of Strathclyde. We are very grateful for the feedback that we received from many of you with regard to the 2020 conference. We have taken your comments on board and, where we can, will be refining next year’s conference.

Please download and read for further details on the above, as well as on: the forthcoming IARIW-ESCoE Conference on Intangible Capital; our recent workshop on online job vacancy data; our research on public understanding of economics and economic statistics; the latest Management and Expectations Survey; our involvement with the Nuffield Future Researchers Programme; details of new joiners; and recent ESCoE publications.
