Last year’s Nobel prize in economics has been awarded to UK-born Oliver Hart and Bengt Holmström of Finland. We are honored to get Bengt as our Thought Leaders’ Talk guest!

“Hart and Holmström are two of the most distinguished economists of our time”. Leonardo Felli – The head of the economics department at the London School of Economics

During his career, Bengt Holmström has studied real-life contracts and institutions, as well as potential pitfalls in contract design. This speech will shed light on innovations in research.

As a young student of mathematics and physics, Bengt Holmström has worked at Ahlström before moving to the United States. Now, more than 30 years later, he is an awarded economist at MIT, one of the most prestigious universities in the world. He has previously worked as a Professor at Yale University and is a member of the Aalto University Board. Meanwhile he is an active thought leader in economic policy discussions in Finland.

After the speech there will be Q&A session. Don’t miss out this unique chance to meet a Nobel laureate! Winner wines will be served after the event provided by KAUTE-foundation.
