The Trento Summer School in Adaptive Economic Dynamics


Deadline:  9 April 2018
Open to: advanced/candidate phds, post docs and junior scholars
Venue: 4-15 June 2018 in Trento, Italy

Description

The Trento Summer School in Adaptive Economic Dynamics will be offering its XIX edition, June 4-15, 2018.

It will be the last in the series and will focus on Macroeconomics after the Financial Crisis: Looking Ahead.

The XIX edition will follow a workshop format. Some of the questions we would like to explore include: What weaknesses did the crisis reveal in the models upon which policy-makers have relied? What approaches show promise in dealing with these issues?

The lecturers in the summer school are both academics and policy makers, seasoned economists and young professionals making their mark in the field. We hope for a fruitful encounter in which the students will play a part.

Eligibility

The School is intended for advanced/candidate phds, post docs and junior scholars. Each year we accept about 25-30 students at the doctoral or post-doctoral level.
