The EcoMod Modeling School will offer in Prague 8 five-day intensive hands-on courses in general equilibrium modeling, GVAR, DSCE, fiscal and budgetary policy and macro-econometric modeling using GAMS, Matlab, Dynare and Eviews. Introductory and advanced levels. Since the courses run simultaneously, participants can chose one course per period.

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

The fee for each course is US$3,425.00. 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 above mentioned amount (US$2570.00). Please send (by email: office@ecomod.net ) a copy of your student or staff card.

A discount of $500.00 is offered on the regular fee, and $400.00 on the university fee for registration with payment completed by May 15, 2018.

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, click here. The deadline to apply for a scholarship is two months before the beginning of the course by April 28, 2018.

The following courses will be offered:

Energy and Environmental CGE Modeling with GAMS
June 25, 2018 - June 29, 2018

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.

Building and Using Social Accounting Matrices (SAM) and SAM Multiplier Models for Policy Analysis
June 25, 2018 - June 29, 2018

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.

Advanced Techniques in General Equilibrium Modeling with GAMS
June 25, 2018 - June 29, 2018

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.

Practical General Equilibrium Modeling with GAMS
June 25, 2018 - June 30, 2018

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

Macroeconometric Modeling using EViews
June 25, 2018 - June 29, 2018

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.
