Experimental Finance Summer School, June 14-15

The University of Innsbruck’s Department of Banking and Finance and the Society for Experimental Finance (SEF) would like you to attend the Experimental Finance Summer School 2021. The summer school will be held online on the two days preceding the Experimental Finance conference.

The goal of the summer school is to deepen students’ understanding and knowledge of the field of experimental finance. Students are also invited to attend the Experimental Finance Conference from June 16-18.

The Summer school particularly aims for students from the following target groups:

  • Young scholars from finance and economics departments that do not benefit from a research group at their University, but are interested in pursuing research in Experimental Finance.
  • Young scholars from finance and economics departments that are embedded in an experimental group but want to improve their experimental skills and get an overview over some of the main fields in a systematic way.
