Concept

LEOH is a series of annual lectures for graduate students and faculty in economics and management science, jointly organized by Prof. Florian Englmaier (LMU Munich), Prof. Guido Friebel (Goethe University), and Prof. Dirk Sliwka (University of Cologne).

Each year, we host an internationally renowned scholar who has contributed substantially to the economics of organizations and human resources.

Past events were organized at Goethe University (2015, featuring Prof. Robert Gibbons of MIT), LMU Munich (2016, featuring Prof. Oliver Hart of Harvard University), and the University of Cologne (2017, featuring Prof. Botond Köszegi of CEU Budapest).

LEOH 2018 will take place at the University of Hamburg, September 17-18, 2018, featuring Prof. Antoinette Schoar of MIT.

The LEOH workshop covers two days made up of lectures and poster sessions in which advanced PhD students or junior faculty (up to 2 years after PhD completion) are given the opportunity to present their work.

For selected papers, there is also the opportunity to give a presentation at the annual meeting of the Committee for Organizational Economics of the German Economic Association (Verein für Socialpolitik), which overlaps with the annual LEOH workshop.
