About

The Society for Economics Research in India (SERI) was set up in the year 2015 to create a community of scholars who are affiliated with Indian institutions and engaged in cutting-edge research on topics in economics. SERI’s mission is to promote research collaboration, information sharing, intellectual exchange and critique among peers at research oriented economics and business departments across the country.

The main platform for pursuing this goal is an annual workshop where members and other invited speakers can present their ongoing research to each other and receive feedback. The workshop is conceived to allow greater engagement than is possible under the usual conference format. There will be a small number of papers and participants, longer time slots to allow detailed exposition and discussion, and plenty of mingling over meals and refreshments. Future plans also include more specialized workshops, especially in collaboration with funding organizations interested in disseminating research results in narrower fields.
