The main activities of the Baltic Economic Association include:

  • Annual Baltic Economic Conferences.
    Annual conferences rotate every year within the three countries. The conference is based on the annual meetings of the Lithuanian Economics Network, started in 2012.
  • Baltic Central Banks Invited Lecture Series.
    The Baltic Central Banks Invited Lecture Series (BCBILS) is a joint initiative of the central banks of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania that is intended to strengthen academic cooperation between universities and central banks in the Baltic countries and to improve the quality of economic research in our region by inviting leading researchers to give lectures on their research topics. The event combines a short training course given by a renowned economist and a seminar where participants present their studies on related topics. The main target group of the lectures and the seminar is researchers, both at policy institutions and universities, and advanced-level PhD students. There is no registration fee. 
  • Competition for the best paper presented by a PhD student at the Baltic Economic Conference. The competition is open to any paper authored by PhD students (or who defended in the year of the Conference), irrespective of institutional affiliation or nationality. The rules of the competition are available here.
