Market design is an area of economics that seeks practical solutions to real-world problems. To reach this goal, market designers combine a good understanding of the existing institution with rigorous analysis and thoughtful implementation. They design incentives to mitigate frictions and externalities in order to align the market outcomes with society’s objectives beyond pure economic efficiency. Successful market design requires close interaction between researchers from various fields with practitioners.
The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), the Panthéon-Assas University (Paris 2) and the Leibniz Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) organize a yearly workshop on market design. The workshop takes place over two days, and aims to bring together researchers from academia and industry practitioners working on problems that frequently arise when designing markets.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the 2nd edition is postponed and will be held at the Panthéon-Assas University, 12 Place du Panthéon in Paris, on 7-8 June 2021.
