Monthly Inclusive Prosperity Lunch Seminar: Dr. Constanze Binder
From October 2019 on, the Dynamics of Inclusive Prosperity initiative hosts a monthly lunch seminar. Academics from various fields of research will speak about interesting and relevant topics related to inclusive prosperity. Lunch seminars are usually on the last Thursday of each month from 12:00 to 13:00 and open to everyone. Due to the holiday period, this months meeting will be one week earlier. During the seminar, a free sandwich lunch will be provided by the initiative. We are happy to welcome Dr. Constanze Binder this month.
