TEF is Ireland’s first and largest student run economic forum and was launched by President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins, in 2012.

In 2014, we are bringing students together from across Ireland to  enjoy:

  • Keynote speeches from world-renowned economists Martin Hellwig (Economist and author of best-selling book ‘The Bankers New Clothes’)  and Casey Mulligan (Professor of Economics, University of Chicago) and former Taoiseach John Bruton
  • Fascinating talks like the Economics of the Wire, Banking & Blackjack, as well as panel topical discussions on Higher Education and the Future of the Irish Economy
  • Helpful talks on how to excel in the new policy competition we have launched with the Department of Finance – there’ll be three winners of the competition (one getting the opportunity of a paid internship)
  • Full schedule is available here 

Beyond our top-class line-up, there are also great networking opportunities with both speakers and PwC representatives throughout the weekend.

On top of this, included in our ticket prices are:

  • Food and drinks provided by KC Peaches each day
  • A drinks reception on the Friday night, with free wine, beer, non-alcoholic drinks and finer-food
  • TEF merchandise
