The Faculty of Economics and Political Sciences at Cairo University in collaboration with the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne holds an annual workshop that provides a platform for approximately 40 economists (and professionals in related disciplines) from Egypt and France to discuss their recent research work. In addition, it offers a vehicle for networking among researchers from both universities.

The organization of this research workshop follows a long-standing cooperation between the two universities, including the agreement of a double diploma (both at the undergraduate and the postgraduate levels) in economics that strengthen scientific links between the two parties.

This workshop will take place in the premises of the Faculty of Economics and Political Science, Cairo University on the 24th and 25th of November, 2019.
