Jéco 2016: 60 free lectures on the theme "Our world has changed"

On November 8, 9 and 10, 2016, the 9th edition of the "Journées de l'économie", or Jeco, was held on the theme "Our world has changed". Over nearly 10 years, the Jéco has become a key national event reflecting on major economic issues.

The spirit of this event is to invite the public to meet key economic players, business leaders, decision makers from local authorities, institutions and economists and to bring them together with anyone who is looking to understand the role of the economy in our societies.

The ENS of Lyon supports this event, which was initiated by one of its teachers, Pascal Le Merrer. ENS contributes to the communication of knowledge on economic issues, through 2 other initiatives:

  • The SES-ENS site, providing all resources in economic and social sciences, in collaboration with the DGESCO.
  • The MOOC or massive on-line course "What is economics?", with the collaboration of Pascal Le Merrer.

The partnership with the Jéco thus strengthens ENS de Lyon’s policy to transmit knowledge to all audiences.
Once again this year, the Jéco hosts a remarkable set of speakers.

Highlights of the 2016 edition
60 free lectures, open to the public, given by more than 250 prestigious speakers, articulated around the observation that "the world has changed", focus on the main questions of today: a weakened Europe, fragmented societies, uncertain technical progress, slowed globalization and the need to reinvent work organization.
