Seminar on Austrian Economics

Since 2010, INESS organizes a four-day Seminar on Austrian Economics (SREk). It is predominantly intended for university students, who perceive Economics more broadly than just Accounting and Excel. The aim of the seminar is to promote economic, critical and philosophical thinking.

Over 200 students have already attended the seminar, coming from different cities and universities. There were more than 20 lecturers from various countries that have come to share their experience and knowledge. The students have had the opportunity to experience interesting workshop, discussions and develop new friendships. Some of them even did an internship at INESS, after the seminar.

Participats about SREK:

'I am very grateful, since you are helping to make the world a better place. I consider this type of events to have even cultural significance. Everyone was awesome. These four days have left me insourmountably happy. I will definitely recommend this event to everyone and I, myself would like to attend it again.'

' This wonderful seminar taught me more than the university I have been attending for the past two semesters. I have been given a lot of knowledge for a great price.'

' I enjoyed SREK as it was, as a whole, and most importantly, the fact that it was not completely formal, but we had the opportunity to discuss different issues during the evening informal discussions.'
