The Department of Economics of the University of Ioannina organizes the 3rd Summer School in Economics in Crete - Greece. The general objective of the Summer School is to provide a stimulating environment for young researchers who seek to obtain advanced training on important disciplines of economics and econometrics. Moreover, it offers the opportunity to all the participants, and especially the advanced doctoral students, to present their research and to interact with other students from all over the world, as well as with leading scholars of the academic profession.


The 3rd Summer School in Advanced Economics will take place from June 26, 2017 to July 1, 2017 at Iolida Beach Hotel in Chania - Crete. This year’s specialized topic will be “Meta-analysis / Meta-regression Analysis in Economics. Theoretical and Empirical Investigation” and we are honored to welcome Tom Stanley as the Distinguished Guest Professor. The School consists of both theoretical sessions (in the form of lectures) and practical sessions. The practical sessions take place in a computer lab. Their aim is to complement the lectures with empirical applications. The working language is English.
