Stata Winter School

January 22-26

Timberlake (Portugal) and FEP (U. Porto) are jointly organizing a set of applied Econometrics courses using Stata. The aim of these courses is to familiarize the participants with key econometric tools commonly used in applied research.
The courses include a quick discussion of the relevant econometric theory as well as an in-depth discussion of empirical applications using real data. The course will take place at FEP (U. Porto) on January 2018.
All participants are invited to wine tasting and special dinner on thursday, 25th. This event is included in the price of the Winter School.
