8th Toulouse Economics and Biology Workshop: Fertility: causes and consequences

May 11–12, 2021


Background and objective

Just as physics provides a foundation for chemistry, and chemistry for medicine, biology is the natural foundation for any science that seeks to understand the behavior of living beings, including humans. This year we will be holding the 8th Toulouse Economics and Biology Workshop. In the past, this workshop has dealt with topics such as the evolutionary foundations of morality, the intra-generational transmission of preferences, the family, cognition and rationality, and cultural evolution. This year the theme is Fertility: Causes and Consequences. Speakers come from several disciplines, including anthropology, biology, demography, and economics.


Besides the plenary sessions, there will be a poster session to which post-docs and Ph.D. students are most welcome to submit applications (abstract + CV + cover letter) to no later than March 31, 2021.



Online registration is required to attend the workshop. Registration deadline: May 4th, 2021


This event is funded by a French government subsidy managed by the Agence Nationale de la Recherche under the framework of the investissements d'avenir programme reference ANR-17-EURE-0010.
