GTAP Events: HomeWhile GTAP's most visible products are a global Data Base and economic model, there is little question that one of the key ingredients in GTAP's success to date has been fostered by the Annual GTAP Short Courses in Global Trade Analysis, Dynamic Short Courses, and Annual Conferences on Global Economic Analysis, the alumni of which are listed in the GTAP Directory.
Many of the participants remark that a highlight of the courses and conferences is the opportunity to get to know other members of the Network. Indeed, quite a number of collaborative research relationships have been born thanks to these events.
Advisory Board Meetings
Members of the GTAP Consortium are represented on the GTAP Advisory Board. The Board advises the Center on matters of policy, research agenda, and funding. In so doing, they help to set the direction of future GTAP developments.
The Annual Conference on Global Economic Analysis aims at promoting the exchange of ideas among economists conducting quantitative analysis on global issues. A strong emphasis is placed on applied general equilibrium methods, data, and applications.
The objective of the GTAP 101 course is to engage participants in an active, team-based process of learning about the GTAP computable general equilibrium (CGE) model and its use in applied economic policy analysis.
The objective of the GTAP PTA course is to provide students with an underpinning in the economic theory of tariffs and customs unions and regulatory policy analysis, and to help them develop their applied skills in database development, design of PTA experiments and analysis of model results.
Short Courses in Global Trade Analysis
GTAP offers courses in applied economic analysis. These intensive courses introduce participants to a standardized framework for conducting global policy analysis in an applied general equilibrium setting. The online portion of the course is only offered in conjunction with the short courses in global trade analysis.
Short Courses in Dynamic Global Trade Analysis
GTAP offers courses in dynamic modeling. These intensive courses introduce participants to a standardized framework for conducting dynamic global trade analysis in an applied general equilibrium setting. The online portion of the course is only offered in conjunction with the short courses in dynamic global trade analysis.
