The CEPR Network on Household Finance and Monash Business School are organising the Eighth European Workshop on Household Finance on 19-22 April 2023 with the support of the PhD programme at EDHEC, London Business School and Queen Mary University of London. The objective of this workshop is to host presentations and foster interaction between senior and junior researchers working in the area of household finance. The research workshop will include an evening event organised by Kaveh Majlesi (Monash University and CEPR) on Wednesday 19 April 2023, 16:00-18:00 local time. The workshop will include state-of-the-art research on household financial behaviour and on how this is influenced by other choices, government policies, and the overall economic environment. This will take place from Thursday 20 until Saturday 22 April from 16:00 to 20:00 local time each day and in a hybrid format.

The organisers solicit papers in the following areas, but other related areas may also be considered:

• Patterns of asset allocation and debt behaviour over the life cycle
• Financing retirement and the demographic transition
• Consumer indebtedness, financial distress and default decisions
• Behavioural approaches to household finances
• Financial literacy and financial education programmes
• Trust, subjective expectations, pessimism, and financial decisions
• International comparisons of household finances using micro-data
• Cognitive and genetic studies on individual financial performance
• Financial advice and legal protection of investors and borrowers
• The impact of technology on household financial behaviour

The organisers encourage submissions from PhD students in household finance. Students must apply online stating that they are a PhD student and supply their CV.


The deadline for submissions is 18:00 (GMT), Monday 30 January 2023.

The submission fee for each paper is 50 euro and proceeds will contribute to covering workshop costs. The submission fee is waived only if the author and co-authors are PhD students. Full instructions on the submission process can be found by following the link below:


Please make the submission fee payment of 50 euro via the following link on CEPR’s PayPal account https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=UY93EYT2PVZ54.

When submitting your paper, please indicate whether you have funds to cover your own travel and accommodation costs, or whether you will require funding. This information does not affect inclusion of your paper, but it will be used to determine the level of your reimbursement, if any.


EXPENSES – Expenses of paper presenters and discussants will be covered, unless they indicate that they are able to cover their own expenses. Limited support funds for PhD students will also be available. Applications for attendance without a paper presentation will be possible once the programme is finalised, and available places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

BEST PAPER AWARDS – Students should note that, from 2020 on, the best student paper prize will only be awarded once a year at the Household Finance Conference which takes place every Autumn. So, students who want their paper to be considered for the prize should submit it to the Autumn conference, but they are welcome to submit another paper to the Spring workshop.
