The Warwick Economics Summit is the largest student-run academic conference in Europe, covering the fields of economics, politics, and the wider social sciences. The next edition, WES 2023 will be held at the University of Warwick from 10th to 12th of February. Taking into consideration the uncertainty and risks associated with Covid-19, WES 2023 will be a hybrid Summit combining in-person and virtual events.

The recently concluded 2022 virtual Summit was an outstanding success, attracting 6000+ delegates from more than 200 universities and addressing the most pressing global issues. We were honoured to hear from José Manuel Barroso (former President of the European Commission),  Lars Peter Hansen (Nobel Economics Prize Laureate), Yuval Noah Harari (Historian and author of Sapiens) and Irina Bokova (former Director-General of the UNESCO) among others, and the 2023 edition will be just as exciting!

Through a world-class speaker line-up, WES Blogs (where students across the world write on different topics), a Student Speakers Series and our exclusive Meet the Speaker series as well as numerous networking and career events that provide a chance to discuss topics relevant to the world, we offer a unique opportunity for students to meet and learn from world leaders and fellow students.  

The WES team would like to welcome students from across the EUTOPIA alliance to participate in this rich programme of events. Conference delegates are recruited through a network of student Ambassadors and Representatives. Ambassadors are responsible for advertising WES and recruiting a delegation (in-person and virtual delegates) and will be the WES team’s first point of contact to organise the logistics of their trip. Representatives assemble purely virtual delegations. There is further information available in the attached brochure – including links to the relevant pages where students can apply to be local Ambassadors or Representatives. Applications to be an Ambassador close at the end of November. The deadline for Representatives will be in early 2023.
