Conference on Structural Transformation, Growth, and Economic Development

at 14:00 GMT, London/Online

​​​​​​​STEG’s third annual conference will be held on Thursday 2 February and Friday 3 February, in the London School of Economics. This year’s conference is organised jointly with the International Growth Centre (IGC), in recognition of the overlapping communities and interest areas of the two programmes.

The conference will take place in-person by invitation only, with presentations streamed to a broader external audience. In addition, STEG and the IGC will co-host an add-on workshop on Wednesday 1 February, jointly organised with the Private Sector Development Research Network (PSDRN), a research community curated by development finance institutions (DFIs).

The Conference on Structural Transformation, Growth, and Economic Development will feature keynote talks and panels from distinguished academics and policy makers, as well as presentations of ongoing projects and recent research papers related to structural transformation. In addition to full-length presentations, the conference will include one or more sessions of short presentations to showcase the breadth of research being carried out, especially by younger scholars. Through the conference, we hope to highlight the diversity of research in the field and to disseminate some of the excellent research currently being funded by STEG. We also hope to offer opportunities for engagement and networking to early-career researchers from a wide range of institutions and geographies.
