WIUT’s Professor Dr. Rustam Abduraupov meets Nobel Laureates Featured

Published in NEWS WIUT

Starting from August 22, 2017 Lindau (Germany) became the “center of economic sciences” in the world. For a period of almost a week more than 300 young talented economists from different parts of the world had a great chance to meet 17 Nobel Laureates on Economic Sciences.

The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings – established in 1951 – provide globally recognised forums for exchange between Nobel Laureates and young scientists. This year the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings and the Foundation Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings organised the 6th Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences. The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings interact closely with a global network of academic partners to identify highly-talented young scientists and to nominate them for participation.Having passed an international, multi-stage selection process among thousands of applications, Dr. Rustam Abduraupov joined a team of scientific elite of the future.

During the Meeting Rustam Abduraupov participated in lectures and panel discussions together with Robert J. Aumann,  Peter A. Diamond , Lars Peter Hansen , Oliver Hart , James J. Heckman, Bengt R. Holmström, Finn E. Kydland, Eric S. Maskin, Daniel L. McFadden, Sir James A. Mirrlees , Roger B. Myerson, Sir Christopher A. Pissarides, Edward C. Prescott, Myron S. Scholes, Christopher A. Sims , Jean Tirole and other peers and guests.

One of the most inspiring lectures for Rustam Abduraupov was Professor Oliver Hart’s “Should a Company Pursue Shareholder Value?” After the discussion of the topic, Oliver Hart and Rustam Abduraupov agreed to work together on the future publications.

Dr. Rustam Abduraupov says: “The 6th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting on Economic Sciences was one of the most exciting events in my life. It was a unique opportunity to meet 17 Nobel Laureates at once during a week, a wonderful full of meetings, speeches, lectures, panel discussions, seminars and joy. We [young economists] were invited to come together in Lindau to learn, share ideas and experience, network and make friends.

The coming Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting on Economic Sciences will be held in 2020. I hope more of my colleagues from Westminster International University in Tashkent apply for attending this event to gain invaluable once-in-a-lifetime experience that hopefully has a lifelong impact.”
