ERSA invites applications for the first of three basic econometrics courses , geared to academics and postgraduate (master’s and PhD) students with limited training in econometrics and quantitative methods. The training will be conducted in a computer lab at the Department of Economics at the University of Pretoria. Participants will not only acquire the necessary theoretical background but will also be exposed to hands-on empirical application, using software such as EViews
and STATA. The first training workshop will be held from 3–7 July 2017, while the dates for the second and third workshops, respectively on cross-sectional techniques and panel data analysis, will be communicated later. ERSA will sponsor 10 to 15 delegates; the sponsorship will cover course fees, and where needed accommodation and flights.
