Cluster 5: Nectar Summer Schools and Conferences
Cluster 5 of Nectar organizes a yearly integrated Summer School and Conference, which has a strong emphasis on transport economics, but a yearly changing main focal theme. The next event organized by the Cluster will be the Kuhmo Nectar Summer School 2009 in Denmark (for details see below).
4th Kuhmo-Nectar Summer School and Conference
The website for the 4th Kuhmo-Nectar Summer School and Conference is now open for registrations.
The Summer School takes place June 29 - July 1. A unique feature of the summer school is the faculty, comprising some of the world's most prominent economists working in transport and related areas.

The summer school aims to offer a high-quality programme, primarily targeted at PhD students and practitioners who are looking for a condensed programme that introduces them to recent advances in academic research in Transport and Urban Economics.
The Summer School is followed by a Conference open to all. The main themes for the conference match those selected for the summer school. Delegates are of course free to follow either the summer school, or the conference, or both.
The important dates are the following:
- March 1: Deadline for the submission of abstracts
- April 15: Notification of acceptance of abstracts
- May 15: Deadline registration at an "early" fee
- May 15: Deadline submission of papers for USB-stick
- June 29 - July 3: Summer school and conference
I look forward to welcoming participants to Copenhagen.
