Block course
24s Std.M. Filippini


KurzbeschreibungThis course is designed for PhD & advanced Masters students who are interested in energy and environmental economics. The focus of the lectures/seminars is on methods of applied econometrics in these fields. The course is composed of lectures on specific topics and a seminar. In the seminar, students will have an opportunity to present own papers or to present and discuss empirical studies.
LernzielThe objectives of this course are twofold: first, students will learn about the application of econometric techniques in the fields of energy and environmental economics. Second, through the presentation of their papers or the presentation and discussion of the existing literature, students will also get a sense of how critical thinking can be used to assess empirical research in energy and environmental economics.
