The IEA Annual Conference is the highlight of the Association’s activities and takes place in early May at different locations around Ireland.
The Annual conference features two international plenary lectures – the Edgeworth Lecture and the ESR Lecture – as well as a number of invited and contributed paper sessions. Each year we award a number of prizes including the Denis Conniffe prize for the best paper by a young economist, the Brendan Walsh prize for the best paper published in the Economic and Social Review, the Novartis prize for the best health economics paper, and the Irish Society for Women in Economics (ISWE) prize for the best paper presented by a women economist.
The first conference took place in 1986, and since then, continues to grow in popularity attracting both national and international economists.
