The conference on the 175 years of The Economist was run by a research team based at the Department of Science and Technology Studies, University College London.


The team was involved in a 5 year project “Economics in the Public Sphere” (ECONPUBLIC) funded by the European Research Council’s Starting Grants Scheme under the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) / ERC grant agreement n° 283754. The project concluded in December 2016.
