1) During the first block, there will be sessions dedicated to the presentation of MICRO-DYN related research results. These sessions are organized in five Work Packages as follows:
The topics of MICRO-DYN Work Packages:
WP1: Innovation activities of firms
WP2: Innovation, competitiveness and the dynamics of market structure
WP3: Firms and European job and productivity dynamics
WP4: Business environment and regional dynamics
WP5: Internationalisation of corporate activity
(Please consult the project website at www.micro-dyn.eu for further details.)
2) During the second block, there will be both methodological training sessions on panel data analysis and sessions dedicated to the presentation of the works by the young participants in the Summer School.
The methodological sessions are organized as follows:
SESSION 1: "Econometrics of Public Policy Evaluation" by T. Brodaty (ERUDITE)

Additional Information

Applications to participate in this Summer School should be sent by July 15th, 2010. Applicants are required to send the application form (found on the website), together with a letter of motivation, their CV and a research paper or extended abstract to: Ronald Hartwig (hartwig at wiiw.ac.at). The topic of the paper should match the thematic orientation of the project and its Work Packages, as briefly outlined above (for further details see: www.micro-dyn.eu, section “workpackages”). It is expected that the paper will be completed and submitted before the start of the Summer School. For accepted participants from the MICRO-DYN consortium, travel, accommodation and subsistence costs will be covered. There are also funds to cover the costs for participants from other institutions, but these will be restricted to accommodation and subsistence expenditures. There are no additional fees to be paid for attending the Summer School. There will also be a “best paper award” of 500 euro to a young researcher. Participants will have the benefit of interacting in a small group environment with well-known experts in the field of micro-economic data analysis, having their own research thoroughly discussed and the opportunity to establish longer-term research network contacts.
