An eventful opening day of the 7th Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences has come to a close: The official Opening Ceremony featured greetings from various top-class guests. Afterwards, we started our academic programme with the lectures of the 2020 Laureates Paul R. Milgrom and Robert B. Wilson. It was followed by the panel discussion on the topic of “Auctions” with the Laureates Milgrom, Myerson and Wilson and young economist Angie Acquatella.
