The Research in International Economics and Finance (RIEF) network was constituted in 2004 with the objective to reinforce scientific collaboration and contacts between European research centers working on international economics (either trade, international macro, or international finance). The network organizes every two years an international conference, and a yearly doctoral meeting.
