Luigi Solari Lecture

In memory of Luigi Solari, the Institute of Economics and Econometrics (IEE) organizes an annual public lecture in economics and econometrics.

Professor Luigi Solari (1932-1977) was a pioneer in introducing research in econometrics in Switzerland. As a Professor at the University of Geneva since 1964, he was the first to teach this discipline in Switzerland. In 1966, he created a research center for econometrics at the Faculty of Economic and Social Sciences, which later became the Department of Econometrics, and then the Institute of Economics and Econometrics (IEE).

This conference has featured many distinguished economists and econometricians as guest speakers, including Nobel Laureates Jean Tirole, Bengt Holmström, Jan Tinbergen, Richard Stone, and Robert Engle.
