The 2019 Econometric Game

The annual World Championship of Econometrics, The Econometric Game, is nearly upon us again!

Readers of this blog will be familiar with "The Game" from posts relating to this event in previous years. For example, see here for some 2018 coverage.

This year The Econometric Game will be held from 10 to 12 April. As usual, it is being organized by the study association for Actuarial Science, Econometrics & Operational Research (VSAE) of the University of Amsterdam. 

Teams of graduate students from around the globe will be competing for top prize on the basis of their analysis of econometrics case studies. The top three tams in 2018 were from  Universidad Carlos III Madrid,  Harvard University, and Aarhus University.

Check out this year's Game, and I'll post more on it next month.

(30 March, 2019 update - This year's theme has now been announced. It's "Climate Econometrics".)
