The University of Duisburg-Essen invites you to attend the 16th Ruhr Graduate Summer School on “Economic Impact Assessment of Energy and Climate Policies using GAMS and MPSGE” from 26-30 September 2022 at Campus Essen. Participation this year will be on site.

The workshop teaches step by step the key elements of Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) analysis, ranging from the fundamental logic of structural economic equilibrium conditions via the parameterization with empirical data to the application of larger-scale models. Participants will thereby get familiar with state-of-the-art CGE modelling approaches.

For the computer implementation of economic equilibrium models the course builds on the high-level programming language GAMS (Generalized Algebraic Modeling System). The fundamental strength of GAMS lies in the ease with which mathematically-defined models can be formulated and solved. To facilitate the formulation of large-scale CGE models, the course uses the Mathematical Programming System for General Equilibrium analysis (MPSGE) – a widespread meta-language for CGE modeling operational under GAMS.

Teaching combines lectures on the theoretical underpinnings of policy assessment with numerical model applications based on peer-reviewed publications.

 

Instructors

Prof Christoph Böhringer (University of Oldenburg, Germany)

Prof Volker Clausen (University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany)

 

Workshop Contents

  • Economic Equilibrium and Mixed Complementarity
  • GAMS Implementation of Basic CGE Models in MCP
  • MPSGE Implementation of CGE Models and Excel Data Interface
  • Technology Foundation of Top-Down CGE Models and Energy Policy Analysis
  • Impact Assessment of Climate Policies

 

Participants

The workshop is targeted to scientific researchers and policy analysts at universities, research centers, consulting companies and ministries who are interested in the economic impact assessment of policy interventions using numerical state-of-the-art models to investigate the economic impacts of energy and climate policies.

 

Fees and Scholarships

The fee for participating in the training workshop is 2,500 Euro and includes lectures, course material and lunches. Academic participants from accredited universities or research institutions will be admitted on a space-available basis for a discount of 20%. Graduate students from accredited academic institutions are likewise admitted on a space-available basis for a discount of 50%. There will be a limited number of scholarships (in the form of tuition waiver, excluding travel and subsistence expenses) that have been set aside for qualified participants from developing countries. Deadline for the application for a scholarship is July 1, 2022.

 

Additional Information and Deadlines

All sessions take place at the Department of Economics at the University of Duisburg-Essen, Campus Essen. The registration deadline is August 26, 2022. The maximum number of participants is restricted to 16! Slots are guaranteed only upon full payment of fees through the course coordinator.
