Seed Grant: Triangle Economists in Applied Microeconomics (TEAM) Working Group · 2020 Co-Lead · Duke Office for Faculty Advancement Last year, this seed grant project created a working group for pre-tenure economists at Duke and other universities in the Triangle who are doing research broadly defined as applied microeconomics. TEAM seeks to provide a community in which members can thrive as young scholars. The two main activities—monthly seminar presentations and biannual writing retreats—provide opportunities peer feedback, a low-stakes environment, and dedicated writing time. This year, the group plans to build on its successful beginning by continuing its activities and expanding the community-building element. There will be a two-day off-campus writing retreat as well as a one-day on-campus retreat to allow more time for engaging in relaxed conversation, sharing goals, and other activities. There will also be a group dinner once each semester to provide more opportunity to build relationships with each other.
