Structured workshop with a solid content that is currently being taught in econometric classes at top European universities.
M&S Research Hub organizes a one-day online workshop about CGE Modeling. The workshop setting is highly interactive and includes real-life data applications. The workshop content is designed to meet all levels of proficiency, accordingly, no prior knowledge of CGE models is needed.
This workshop provides an excellent opportunity for scholars, researchers and data practitioners to learn and enhance their knowledge about policy simulations using Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) models. The workshop covers theoretical foundations and real data applications using GAMS software.
For 3-4 hours, the workshop will cover the following headlines:
Part 1: Theoretical Background of CGE Models
Part 2: Data Requirements of CGE Models
Part 3: Coding CGE Models in GAMS Software
The workshop will take place on Cisco's WebEx online platform. The workshop date is on 16 February at 12 PM (Germany Time)
Instructions on how to log into Webex and the workshop material and codes will be communicated to the participants in a short course before the workshop.
