EF2017 Summer School, University of Nice Sophia Antipolis


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 2017 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 do not benefit from a research group at their University, but are interested in pursuing research in Experimental Finance.

    • Scholars from finance and economics departments who are embedded in an experimental group but want to improve their experimental skills (e.g., software) and get an overview over the main fields in a systematic way.
