Norwegian econ webinar series on Covid-19

As part of the platform for Norwegian Covid-19 econ analyses (https://sites.google.com/site/oslomacro/covid-19), we are starting a webinar series. Here economists will present recent work on how the Corona virus affects the Norwegian economy.

These webinars will run every Tuesday and Thursday morning from 8:30 to 9:30. In the beginning we will mostly be hosting two papers presented in 20 minutes with 10 minutes for discussion.

These webinars will be run in Zoom, https://zoom.us/. You can either install the app beforehand (recommended) or just stream the webinar in your browser. We prefer participants to sign up in advance, but if the webinar is not full (max capacity is 500 persons) you may join directly via the link provided on our webpage. As we hope to reach a broader Norwegian audience, the webinars will be mostly held in Norwegian.
