Travel within Milan to Bocconi University

August is a very big holiday period in Italy and lots of cities close up and head to the sea or mountains. This means that whilst there is less traffic in Milan, lots of public transportation services run on a reduced timetable. Please plan your daily journey in advance to ensure that you arrive at your sessions in time. You can plan your journey on the ATM network planner here. When planning your journey, please enter "Università Bocconi, Milano" as point of arrival / departure. If you wish to rent a bike to get around, please click here for the public bike-sharing service within Milan.

NOTE: FFP2 masks are needed to travel on public transport in Italy.

During sessions, we would ask you to wear a face mask and during coffee breaks and networking events to keep some distance if possible. By exercising a little caution, we can hope for  a safe event for everyone.

Want To Write A Media Briefing For EEA-ESEM 2022?
Do you want your paper presented at EEA-ESEM 22 to be a success in terms of press coverage? One way to achieve this is by drafting a good non-technical summary of the paper. The summary should help make the research accessible to a wider public, setting out why the work is important and what you hope it shows. It should not be the abstract of your paper!

With the help of the EEA media consultant, Romesh Vaitilingam, and the team at Communicating Economics, we encourage you to read their tips here to prepare your own media briefing.  Your media briefing will become public under your profile page and all journalists will be able to filter through the presenters who have written media briefings. We will actively engage with journalists during the course of the congress.
