Timberlake Portugal and Cemapre (Technical University of Lisbon) are jointly organizing a Summer School in Econometrics. The Summer School aims to provide the full set of tools and techniques that any modern applied economist needs to know. Participants will learn the fundamental principles of modern econometrics, and will also learn how to apply the techniques properly using the software Stata.

The course will take place at Cemapre (ISEG), in the center of Lisbon, in July 2013.
