The CERF Cavalcade aims to give you a glimpse of the research that is currently sponsored by CERF. The cavalcade consists of a procession of six speakers. Each speaker has only twelve minutes to present his work, turning the cavalcade into a dynamic event that should keep you engaged from beginning to end. The cavalcade includes speakers from the Faculty of Economics, Cambridge Judge Business School, the Faculty of History, the Department of Sociology and CERF. This mix illustrates the interdisciplinary nature of CERF. All talks have a common denominator though: they cover research that aims to improve our understanding of some aspect of finance.
