GEM (DSGE and CGE) Berlin Workhop

General Equilibrium Models (GEMs) Intensive Workshop

4-Days Face-to-Face Workshop 

Feb 2023


Meininger Hotel Tiergarten

GEMs are highly useful tools for financial and macroeconomic modeling.

M&S Research Hub organizes a fully-fledged intensive workshop that trains participants on the fundamentals of the Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) and Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) approaches using Matlab and GAMS.

Part One: DSGE 

Part Two: CGE


1- CGE Model introduction

2- Production and Demand theories

3- GTAP model and database introduction

4- Modeling Nested Production functions in GEMPACK 

3- Elasticities: CES, Armington calibration 

6- Modeling Nested Demand functions and regional household

7- Practical CGE applications, aggregation, and simulations. 

8- SAM/I-O table construction 

1 - Introduction to DSGE Models
2 - New Keynesian Models
3 - Small Open Economy Models
4 - Extensions to New Keynesian Models
5 - Kalman Filter and Estimation Methods
6 - Examples of Practical Application of DSGE Models


  • Workshop material, printouts, codes will be freely available for participants.
  • Earn MSR certified certificate and enhance your career and employability skills.
  • Learn one of the emerging and widely used approaches for data analysis and macroeconomic modeling
  • Starting from scratch, no prerequisites are needed except familiarity with statistical modeling.
  • Free trial version of the used software packages will be provided for participants

Target Participants

Under & Post Graduates

who are eager to enhance their macroeconomic modeling skills and advance beyond their regular curricula and class levels

Public Officials

working at central banks, ministries, and government economic units. GEMs are the perfect tools for improving your modeling skills to analyze aggregate economic stance, assess policy impact, and project business cycle movements.


who target A-class jounrals and honorary graduation grades. CGE and DSGE model applications are vast, novel, prestigious, and reflect sound methdological skills.
