Virtual Seminar on the Economics of Risky Health Behaviors (VERB)
Tinna Laufey Ásgeirsdóttir, University of Iceland, Iceland
Ana Inés Balsa, Universidad de Montevideo, Uruguay
John Cawley, Cornell University, USA
Hans van Kippersluis, Erasmus University, Rotterdam, Netherlands
The VERB seminar takes place Mondays at 3:30 p.m. Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).
Our goal is to encourage participation by researchers worldwide. One challenge to that is that different parts of the world vary in their use of daylight savings time. The solution to this is to set the time of the seminar using Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). To determine your local time on a given date, you can use an online calculator such as this: https://time.is/compare/UTC.
