EF Summer School 2018, Heidelberg University

The goal of this summer school is to support PhD-students and PostDocs in their first steps in this field. The Experimental Finance Summer School is run the days before the Experimental Finance 2018 conference, at the same venue. This Summer School aims particularly for people from the following target groups:
  • Young scholars from finance and economics departments who belong to a nonexperimental research group at their University, but are interested in pursuing research in Experimental Finance.
  • Young scholars from finance and economics departments who are embedded in an experimental group but want to improve their experimental skills and get an overview over some of the main fields in a systematic way.
