Network of the european program in quantitative economics

Objective

The EDP Network is composed of seven university institutions: -Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona -Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn - London School of Economics - Université catholique de Louvain - Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, DELTA, Paris - Ecole de la Statistique et de l' Administration Economique, CREST, Paris - and, as an exchange partner, Tel-Aviv University These institutions organize jointly the activities of the European Doctoral Program in Quantitative Economics, focusing on economic theory, mathematical economics, decision and game theory, econometric theory and methodology, empirical econometrics, and applied mathematical economics. Their aim is to foster exchange of doctoral students between European universities and to promote their scientific interactions. The doctoral training of the above institutions comprises a preliminary year for completing a MA degree or equivalent, an advanced year for completing a MPhil degree or equivalent and, normally, two thesis years to write a dissertation. The coordinated activities of the network create the opportunity for doctoral students to specialize in a large spectrum of quantitative economics areas and to benefit from the diversity of traditions and current research of the partners. An annual jamboree gathers all students. The EDP network offers Marie Curie Training Site Fellowships to doctoral students wishing to stay at a partner university for three to ten months during the advanced year of their course work or for part of their dissertation work. Any highly qualified students already enrolled in a doctoral degree course is welcome to apply for these fellowships. Applications accompanied by two recommendation letters should be sent to the EDP Office of the network institution where the student wishes to stave at the latest by March 31. Application forms and further information can be obtained from the EDP offices. Decision about funding will be taken by the EDP Network committee.
