Visitors Program


Each year the Economic Theory Center welcomes several short-term visitors to Princeton. Visitors are generally here for a full week during an academic term and participate in research activities in the department, present a seminar, and also make an informal presentation/lecture to our graduate students. They also are available to meet with faculty and graduate students on an individual basis.
