For more than fifty years, the European Winter Meetings of the Econometric Society (EWMES) have fostered interaction among a small group of young scholars and a group of senior academics representing different regions and fields of specialization. Many of today’s leading European economists kick-started their careers at one of these meetings (here is a picture of the 1972 meeting). At the turn of the century, the meetings began to focus on PhD students close to finishing their thesis.

In 2013, the European Standing Committee of the Econometric Society decided to widen the scope of the meetings with an open call for submissions without any regional stratification. But the meeting was to retain its distinct identity with three main features:

• Scientific work of the best quality
• PhD students on the job market
• Close interaction between junior and senior researchers

The first European Winter Meeting of the Econometric Society in this new format took place in Madrid, Spain, in 2014.
