The 11th annual PRI Academic Network Conference 2019 will take place on Monday 9 September at the Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile, developed in collaboration with the Research Chair on Sustainable Finance and Responsible Investments (Chaire FDIR) at Toulouse School of Economics and École Polytechnique.

Delivering the latest research on responsible investment practices, this one-day conference aims to bridge the gap between academic researchers in sustainability and investors leading the way in RI. The event offers a unique opportunity for academics and investors to engage with each other, learn and discuss the latest insights, and to network. 

The Networking Dinner will be held close to the conference venue at Rural by Marc Veyrat on Sunday 8 September (the evening prior to the conference). Don’t forget to add a dinner ticket to your booking!
