About the conference

The Essen Health Conference is a forum where economists present work on the nexus between health, human capital and socio-economic outcomes. We invite submissions in the any of the fields health, education and labour economics, and especially at the intersections between them. 

The Essen Health Conference has been held annually since 2010. We select around 30 papers and invite their authors to Essen for a three-day conference. Each participant presents their own paper and discusses another within a session. Participants are expected to stay for the entire duration of the conference.
