Economic Research Initiatives @ Duke

ERID logo

The mission of Economic Research Initiatives at Duke (ERID) is to establish the Department of Economics at Duke University as a prominent center for cutting-edge economic research. ERID provides our faculty and students a forum for fruitful exchanges of ideas with wider academic communities outside of Duke, both in economics and other related disciplines. ERID gives priority to supporting activities — conferences, a visitors program, and a working papers series — that promote the department's strategic vision. 


Department of Economics faculty are welcome to request funding from ERID for conferences.

Faculty, please refer to the following documents when requesting funding.
