Two scientists from our Faculty invited to the 7th Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences
26 April 2020
The scientific review panel of the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings has selected Ewa Zawojska, PhD, and Wojciech Hardy, PhD, to participate in the 7th Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences.
The opportunity to join the annual gathering of Nobel Laureates at Lindau is provided exclusively to outstanding young scientists aged up to 35 – undergraduates, PhD students, and post-doc researchers.
373 young Economists were invited to the 7th Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences. Young researchers during the meeting will discuss current economic matters and recent discoveries in their field.
The invited participants will be able to take part in the Online Science Days 2020 and the Online Sciathon. These activities will be designed for interactive participation by accepted young economists, young scientists as well as Lindau Alumni. Nobel Laureates and laureates from the field of economics will also be participating and the topics will be addressed from both the economics and natural sciences disciplines.
Once every year, around 30-40 Nobel Laureates gather in Lindau to meet the next generation of leading scientists. The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings foster the exchange of different generations, cultures, and disciplines among scientists.
The meetings focus alternately on physiology and medicine, on physics, and on chemistry – the three natural science Nobel Prize disciplines. An interdisciplinary meeting, which focuses on all three natural sciences, is held every five years. In addition, the Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences is held every three years.
The scientific programme of each Lindau Meeting is based on the principle of dialogue. The different sessions – lectures, discussions, Master Classes, and panel discussions – are designed to activate the exchange of knowledge, ideas, and experience between Nobel Laureates and young scientists.
Due to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, the Council has postponed the 7th Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences to next year - it will take place from 24 to 28 August 2021.

Ewa Zawojska, PhD is an Assistant Professor in the Chair of Microeconomics on our Faculty.
Her research interests include non-market valuation, preference elicitation and, in general, microeconomics. She focuses on the use of survey methods to estimate values of non-market public goods, and, in particular, how the survey design can be enhanced to increase validity and reliability of the estimates. Her research is mostly within environmental economics, though she has also realized projects in other areas, such as cultural economics. She conducts both field valuation surveys as well as lab experiments.
She has managed the project "Incentive compatibility in contingent valuation research" funded by the National Science Centre in Poland within grant Preludium 8. She has participated in several other projects, including projects abroad such as "Assessing the impact of format on choice experiment responses" funded by the Support for the Advancement of Scholarship in Canada.
Her research has earned several awards and scholarships, including Prime Minister's Award for Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation, Scientific Award 2019 of the Journal "Polityka", stipend "Start 2018" of the Foundation for Polish Science and Oded Stark's Award 2017 for Excellence in Publishing.

Wojciech Hardy, PhD is an Assistant Professor Chair of Statistics and Econometrics on our Faculty.
His research focuses on the topics of digital markets with a focus on creative industries, unauthorised content sharing (so-called „piracy”) and new approaches to funding (e.g. crowdfunding).
