Background

This is not yet another new finance conference...

...it is a CONTEST!

The 4nations cup will bring the most promising young scholars in financial economics together in one day of "mini seminars." The 40 minutes seminars are given by candidates from the four nations that are a short flight away from one another. Each nation nominates two lead candidates.

At the end of the day, the audience votes for the candidates and the nation with most points receives the cup.

Who

The candidates in the tournament are the most promising young (time since PhD<10 yrs) scholars in financial economics affiliated with universities domiciled in the participating nations. It is not required to be a citizen of the country that one represents.

The candidates are selected by a scientific committee whose members are affiliated with universities in the participating countries.

Where

The participating schools will take turns in hosting the event.

When

Default is the second Friday in May of each year (only a default, though).

The event is modeled after the rugby 3/4 nations cup tournaments. The nature of the tournament is meant to be "inclusive." Therefore, the four nations participating in the cup change each year.
