EcoMod Modeling School - Europe (Modeling with GAMS, DSGE, CGE Modeling, EViews, Stata and OLG Models)
All EcoMod courses are fully practical and provide hands-on experience through intensive use of exercises on the computer. Participants actually build the models step-by-step with individualized guidance from instructors: from small to large scale and from simple to complex structure.
A discount of $500 is offered on the regular fee, and $400 on the university fee for registrations and payments completed by May 15, 2018.
The following courses will be offered:
Intensive course at the advanced level. The course will focus on multinational and multisectoral modeling with imperfect competition and intertemporal dynamics. This course is only accessible to those who have some experience in general equilibrium modeling and to the alumni of the EcoMod Modeling School or on-line courses.
This course provides a strong theoretical foundation and hands-on experience in building social accounting matrices (SAM), SAM multiplier models, and their use in economic policy analysis. The course also provides a thorough foundation in the System of National Accounts 2008.
Intensive course at the introductory level. This course is tailored for professionals involved in economic forecasting and policy analysis in the central banks, ministries, research organizations, and international institutions.
The course will introduce all the basic tools for constructing and implementing dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) models for policy analysis and forecasting.
Intensive course at the advanced level. The course will focus on modeling energy and greenhouse gas emissions. This course is only accessible to those who have some experience in general equilibrium modeling and to the alumni of the EcoMod Modeling School.
Intensive course at the introductory level. This course is tailored for staff developing or using small or medium size macro models and staff involved in forecasting and policy analysis in the central banks, ministries and international institutions.
Intensive course at the advanced level. This course is only accessible to those who have some experience in dynamic general equilibrium modeling with GAMS and to the EcoMod alumni.
OLG models are very useful in the analysis of a large number of important policy issues such as government tax and expenditure, social security reform, welfare state, aging, international trade, demographic issues, fertility, education, human capital, growth, migration, labor market, environmental issues, intergenerational equity, etc.
Intensive course at the introductory level. For those who have little or no experience in modeling and in GAMS
5 five-day intensive courses
EcoMod offers a limited number of partial scholarships to candidates from developing countries and transition economies.
