Dear Virtual Institute friends,

The Vi, with sponsoring from the Government of Finland, is offering scholarships to all selected participants of the 2018 edition of the Vi online course on Economic Analysis of Non-Tariff Measures, to be held September 3 – October 21 2018.

Developed for researchers from universities, research centres, and governmental and non-governmental institutions in developing and transition countries, the course aims at providing participants with the empirical tools needed to assess the impact of NTMs on trade and welfare. A hands-on technical course, the emphasis will be on the manipulation of data and the use of econometric tools.

Applicants must hold a Master’s degree in Economics or Econometrics or a Master’s degree in Statistics or Finance, with a Bachelor’s degree in Economics or Econometrics. Knowledge of the Stata statistical software (not provided with the course) and excellent English skills are also required.

The deadline for applications is August 12

I hope you find this information useful and that you will distribute widely among your own networks.

Best regards,

Susana Olivares
