The I.S.E.O. Summer School in Economics is one of the few summer courses in the world featuring several Nobel Laureates. Organized by the I.S.E.O. Institute (a non profit institute chaired by Robert Solow), it's aimed at young professionals, researchers and graduate students (masters and phd) notably in Economics and in Finance. For its 16th edition, taking place in Iseo (Brescia, Italy) from 15-22 June 2019, the I.S.E.O. Summer School will feature Alvin Roth (Nobel Laureate 2012), William Sharpe (Nobel Laureate 1990) and Michael Spence (Nobel Laureate 2001). Further international economists will be announced later.

The main title of the upcoming edition is "Global Economy & Financial Markets: What Lies Ahead?". Nobel Laureates and economists will get deep into the most topical discussion on global economy: crucial factors as worldwide growth strategies, welfare state patterns, inequalities, emerging economies, labor markets and financial risks are just some of the themes which will emerge. Conducted entirely in English, lectures of the I.S.E.O. Summer School are made of a fair combination between frontal speech and debates with the participants. Since 2004, the various editions of the I.S.E.O. Summer School have been featuring 17 Nobel Laureates in Economics as lecturers and have been attended by 978 students coming from 101 Countries and 354 different universities in the world.
