The Fondazione promotes the following initiatives:
MILLS - Milan Labour Lunch Seminars
In the area of Milan, there is a considerable concentration of labour economists, particularly among PhD students and junior faculty members. However, they are scattered around the various universities and research institutes located in and around the city. The MILLS are created with the aim of exploiting the potential of such concentration, encouraging co-operation and interactions.
The MILLS are directed particularly to young researchers and are designed to give them the opportunity to present their work in progress and receive comments and feedback from collegues. These seminars take place in a very informal context with no overlappings with the regular departmental seminars of the sponsoring universities.
The MILLS are jointly organised by:
and co-sponsored by the Fondazione Rodolfo Debenedetti.
The MILLS usually take place once per month. The location rotates among the organising institutions (Bicocca, Bocconi, Statale e Cattolica). The local organisers are responsible for advertising the details of the location and for providing instructions about how to reach it. Lorenzo Cappellari (Università Cattolica), Marco Leonardi (Università Statale), Laura Pagani (Università di Milano Bicocca) and Michele Pellizzari (Università Bocconi) are the local organisers.
Sandwiches and beverages will be provided for the participants.
Advertisement and calendar
The MILLS are advertised through a mailing list, kept and updated by the organizers. Besides, each university uses its regular procedures to advertise the seminars internally. The Fondazione Rodolfo Debenedetti hosts on its web site a dedicated page for the MILLS. Here, one can find past presentations and the updated calendar of upcoming seminars.
Those interested in receiving information about the MILLS are invited to contact fRDB (email@example.com) or write an email to the organisers.
