The Department of Economics of Universidad Pablo de Olavide (UPO) is delighted to host the XXXVIII Jornadas de Economía Industrial, to be held in Seville, Spain, on the 5-6 September 2024. The Jornadas is an annual international meeting of researchers in Industrial Economics organized by the Industrial Economics Committee of the Spanish Economic Association (AEE). Since 1985, the meeting has provided an opportunity for researchers in Industrial Economics to discuss their ongoing work, share ideas and network. For more than three decades, the meeting has attracted more than one hundred participants from different countries. We hope that this new edition will continue this tradition.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Seville next September!

However, Seville is a city with many visitors throughout the year, and September is pick season. This means that hotel occupancy is very high, and prices increase considerably.

The service operates every day of the year, from 5:20 am to 01.00 pm (destination to Seville city) and from 4.30 am to 00:05 pm (destination to the airport). The EA line is part of Transportes Urbanos de Sevilla (Tussam) and also stops at Santa Justa train station (train and AVE), arriving at Plaza de Armas, in the centre of Seville.

The terminal’s location is just a 15-minute walk from the city centre.

Tickets are available online at Renfe’s web.

By car

Seville is perfectly connected by road. A highway network connects it to all areas: the A-49 links it with Huelva and Portugal, the A-92 connects to Malaga and Granada, the A-4 arrives from Cordoba and Madrid, and the A-66 connects to Extremadura and the north of Spain. The SE-30, the Ronda Super Norte, and the SE-40 are the bypass roads that facilitate movement around the city and its metropolitan area.

More information about Seville can be found at:


The conference will take place at Universidad Pablo de Olavide, which is located at km. 1 on the highway from Seville to Utrera. You can find the Campus in Google Maps here.

The parallel sessions will take place in buildings 4 and 6, both 5 min. walking from the Metro station on in the campus. The plenary sessions will take place at the Paraninfo (building 31), which is practically next to the parallel sessions’ buildings.

You can easily locate the different buildings and the metro station in the campus map below.

The wi-fi connection is provided in the Campus through the Eduroam network.


You can access the Faculty of Economics and Business, the conference venue, using public transportation:

By Metro:

The most comfortable and fastest way to access the campus is undoubtedly by metro. The metro of Seville currently has one line. It goes from Aljarafe (Ciudad Expo) to Dos Hermanas (Olivar de Quintos), passing through Seville’s city centre. You can take the subway from different stations. Line 1 has one stop at Universidad Pablo de Olavide. Then, there is a 5-minute walk from Pablo de Olavide metro station to the conference location. You can buy a single ticket or a Bonometro. Both can be purchased from vending machines at all stations. The metro ticket system is based on fare zones. This means that the fare paid by the passenger is calculated according to the number of crossing fare zones made during a single journey (fare crossing). The single ticket cost is 1.35 € (no crossing fare), 1.60€ (1 crossing fare) and 1.80€ (2 crossing fares). The Bonometro is like a wallet card. The credit loaded on the card (a minimun of 10 euros is required) is consumed as trips are made. The cost of each trip with the Bonometro is 0.33€ (no crossing fare), 0.47€ (1 crossing fare) and 0.55€ (2 crossing fares). From the city center to Universidad Pablo de Olavide there is no crossing fare.

By bus:

Bus lines 38, M-130A and M-130B link the city to Universidad Pablo de Olavide. The bus frequency is much lower than that of the metro, especially in September before the start of classes. The bus company offers a smartphone platform: Bus tickets are available from the driver (from 1.40 euros).

By bicycle:

Seville has a bicycle rental service called Sevici. Simply get a card, and you can pick up and drop off a bike at any Sevici stop.

More information on Sevici website.

By car:

Reach Seville’s SE30 ring road and follow indications SE30 direction GRANADA; exit SE30 following indications to UTRERA; take the second exit from Carretera de Utrera towards Universidad Pablo de Olavide.
