The EcoMod School will offer in Prague two consecutive weeks of five-day intensive hands-on courses. Courses in modeling and data science using Python, GAMS, Matlab, Dynare, EViews, and Stata. New courses with Python in machine learning, big data analytics, and agent-based modeling. Introductory and advanced level.

The training is fully practical and provides 'hands-on' experience through intensive use of exercises on the computer.

You may attend both the June and July sessions however only 1 course per week. Discounts apply if you stay for two consecutive weeks. Please contact Pat MacNeil at pat.macneil@ecomod.net before you order in order to receive details.

The fee for each course is US$3767.00. This includes course materials including a free course license of GAMS for two months, lectures, computer labs, morning and afternoon coffee breaks, receptions.

University students and staff get a discount of 25% of the regular fee (US$2825.00). Please email: office@ecomod.net a copy of your student or staff card.

A discount of $500.00 is offered on the regular fee, and US$400.00 on the university fee for registration with payment completed by May 15, 2019. Bank transfer fees are the responsibility of participant.

EcoMod offers a limited number of partial scholarships to candidates from developing countries and transition economies. Please pre-register for the course and then submit the application here. The deadline to apply for a scholarship is two months before the beginning of the course by April 29, 2019.

The following courses will be offered:

Practical General Equilibrium Modeling with GAMS
June 24, 2019 - June 28, 2019

Intensive course at the introductory level. For those who have little or no experience in modeling and in GAMS.

Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) Modeling Step-By-Step
June 24, 2019 - June 28, 2019

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.

Overlapping Generation General Equilibrium Modeling with GAMS
June 24, 2019 - June 28, 2019

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

Microsimulation Modeling Using Stata for Tax, Pension, and Health Care Policies
June 24, 2019 - June 28, 2019

Intensive hands-on course at the introductory level. The course provides theoretical foundations and hands-on experience in building and using microsimulation models for tax, pension, health care and social benefit policies.

Financial General Equilibrium Modeling with GAMS
June 24, 2019 - June 28, 2019

Intensive course at the advanced level. This advanced course will introduce all the tools for constructing and implementing financial general equilibrium models for policy analysis. This course is only accessible to those who have some experience in general equilibrium modeling and to the alumni of the EcoMod School or on-line courses.
