On Thursday, 13 December 2018, the research group DFIH (Data for Financial history) at the Ecole d’Economie de Paris/Paris School of Economics will hold the conference A New Data Hub For Financial Research: DFIH (Data for Financial History). The group will present the projects and the current progress on building comprehensive databases on historical French securities traded in the French markets since 1796. The projects aim to improve the current lack of empirical work in historical financial data that are crucial to better understand and find solutions to global financial crises as witnessed in the latest crash ten years ago.
The next day (Friday, 14 December 2018) follows-up with a separate but connected event, the 8th EURHISTOCK Workshop. As in Madrid (2009), Cambridge (2010), Paris (2011), Bonn (2012), Antwerp (2013), Cambridge (2015), Belfast (2016), the 8th edition of the EURHISTOCK workshop aims at providing a meeting point for financial and economic historians as well as financial economists interested in the long-term changes of European financial markets.
The workshop is jointly organized by the Paris School of Economics and the European Business School-Paris.
