IDLab members took part in the European Sport Economics Association (ESEA) conference
Sports economics is one of the areas of research at IDLab. On the one hand, the sports industry generates large amounts of freely available data as a by-product, which allows testing economic theories in more detail, and on the other, it creates interesting research questions due to its specificity.The ESEA conference is one of the few regular conferences dedicated to sports economics. This year, IDLab employees presented the following studies there:
