Training is essential in order to provide the new generation of researchers with the right tools to study the topic of competitiveness. CompNet aims at providing summer schools on a regular basis and at supporting similar initiatives organised by other institutions. 

1. Research on Productivity, Trade and Growth: Theory and Practice

Amsterdam - July 3-7, 2017.

The Tinbergen Institute will host the first CompNet training school on productivity, trade and growth. Over 5 days, Prof. Eric Bartelsman (Vrije Universiteit, Tinbergen Institute), Prof. Jan De Loecker (Princeton, KU Leuven) and Prof. Jo Van Biesebroeck (KU Leuven) will give a brief introduction to models of firms dynamics and then will focus on productivity estimation techniques as well as on recent empirical works.

Participants are expected to have completed at least the first year of a PhD course and have some experience in applied research.
