The Centre also contributes to the encouragement of PhD students and young academics. In 2013 the Centre held a one-day international PhD Colloquium, with Professor Kevin J. Murphy, USC Marshall School of Business, USA, and five distinguished Tutors from leading universities. The Colloquium was funded by the Royal Economic Society and attended by 22 students from Brazil, Finland, Germany, Luxemburg, the Netherlands, Poland, Switzerland, and the UK. Members of the CGR are also very active in supervising PhD research.
