This is the third of 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. The event rotates across the organizing institutions starting with Goethe University (2015, featuring Prof. Robert Gibbons of MIT), and LMU (2016, featuring Prof. Oliver Hart of Harvard University) and Cologne (2017).

The 2017 workshop covers two days made up of lectures by Botond Köszegi and poster sessions in which advanced PhD students or junior faculty (up to 2 years after PhD completion) will be given the opportunity to present their work. For selected papers, there is also the opportunity to give a presentation at the 2017 annual meeting of the Committee for Organizational Economics of the German Economic Association (Verein für Socialpolitik) at the University of Cologne, which overlaps with LEOH 2017 and takes place on September 26-27, 2017.
