  Add to Calendar 2020-05-19 15:00 2020-05-20 16:00 Europe/Paris Interdisciplinary Methodology Workshop on Natural and Field Experiments for the Social Sciences (First Session with Prof. Kosuke Imai, Harvard University)

Causal identification has become increasingly important in the social sciences. Natural and field experiments, due to their use of real life data or realistic environments, are at the forefront of methodologies aimed at establishing causal relationships. These methods are continuously advancing; staying informed about the latest developments in this area is paramount to producing relevant and top quality research. Originating from the Max Weber Interdisciplinary Workshops, a group of EUI fellows with the support of faculty has put together a workshop series targeted at bringing leading causal inference scholars to the EUI to offer methods training to EUI researchers, fellows and faculty.

Each session will comprise of a lecture and a lab exercise using R. Students will be guided through problem sets to help them to implement the methodologies introduced in the lectures in their own research.

The workshops will be offered as a half credit course (10 hours) and are open to all EUI researchers, faculty and fellows to attend. 

SPS PhD researchers should register through the OSIRIS Online Portal (My.eui.eu).

Please note that the Zoom link to the event will be provided following registration.
