28th International Input-Output Association Conference
Young researchers are invited to apply for participation in the Development Programme (DP) during the International Input-Output Conference 2020 in Kuala Lumpur. The IIOA introduced this event at the International Input-Output Conference in Glasgow, 2019. This year, the DP will be organized in cooperation with the Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET)’s Young Scholars Initiative, which will support the participation of highly motivated young researchers.
The programme aims at providing young researchers with opportunities to learn individually from experienced researchers in the community. The DP organizer will assign an experienced discussant to each presenter. He/she will advise during the session, not only on the choice of methods and data but more so about the style and structure of the paper. In addition, this discussant will be encouraged to provide suggestions about how to position the study relative to the existing literature and about how to appeal to a wider range of readers, etc. Presenters will also be given the opportunity to consult directly with their discussant on what kind of advice they are seeking.
Other conference participants will be invited to attend the Development Programme sessions as well and are encouraged to contribute to the discussions.

Financial Support for Young Researchers
This year’s Development Programme is partnering with the Young Scholars Initiative (YSI) of the Institute for New Economic Thinking.

Attendant to this aim, the YSI will provide travel stipends and cover accommodation for selected participants of this year’s Development Programme.
