Since 2006 the Department of Economics of the University of Crete is successfully running its Advanced Summer School in Economics and Econometrics. The broader objective of this series of events is to provide advanced training for young researchers from all over Europe and beyond on important disciplines of economics and econometrics. The Summer School follow a traditional structure: lectures in the morning and computer practical sessions in the afternoon. The specialized topic varies from year to year and reflects issues that are currently lively areas of new research and policy interest. The faculty is comprised of leaders in the field, and offers an overall coverage of the specialist area.
Through systematic interaction participants will be encouraged to compare their approaches and examine their research work. A unique opportunity will be given to advanced doctoral students to present their own work and to discuss it with the Distinguished Guest Professor. The Advanced Summer School Series on Economics and Econometrics facilitates the establishment of contacts between young researchers coming from various universities and research institutions throughout Europe.
