The Purdue University Research Center in Economics (PURCE) hosts a number of events each year that highlight our faculty, their research, and the research's ability to help community groups, businesses, and government address economic challenges.

PURCE also hosts visitors to campus for lectures and more intimate conversations; many events are open to the public while some are reserved for students or PURCE partners and supporters.

Annual Economic Ideas Forum

PURCE's third annual Economic Ideas Forum, set for April 23, 2020, is cancelled in accordance with the directive issued by President Mitch Daniels and Provost Jay Akridge on March 10.

We look forward to hosting our supporters at a future forum. 

Economic Policy Luncheons

PURCE hosts an Economic Policy Luncheon series featuring a faculty member presenting their latest empirical research findings. These lunch hour events are held in Krannert's Rawls Hall, and attendance is by invitation only.

We hold luncheons September-April. However, our April 2020 event has been cancelled.

We look forward to resuming our monthly luncheons in fall 2020.
