That was #LINOecon! A week full of personal encounters, inspirational talks and fruitful scientific discussions. We were saying goodbye with the traditional boat trip from Lindau to Mainau Island. The scientific programme was concluded with a timely Panel Discussion on “Economics and Politics of War and Sanctions”. Subsequently, Countess Bettina Bernadotte, Laureate Eric S. Maskin and young economist Raisa Sherif adressed the audience in their farewell speeches and once again ignited the Lindau Spirit. In the afternoon, the Science Picnic was a great opportunity to refuel for our boat trip back to Lindau Island. Eventually, the 7th Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences ended with our arrival in Lindau. Disembarking, the young economists turned into Lindau Alumni!
