Goals of Summer School

The school will provide an introduction to the DYNARE package and to Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) modeling. DYNARE is a free MATLAB toolbox for simulating and estimating DSGE models.

The courses will focus on simulation, estimation of DSGE models as well as computation of optimal policy. It will be also the occasion to introduce the new features in Dynare 4.2 and 4.3 (to be released this Summer).

This year, results from the European Research project, MONFISPOL, on optimal monetary and fiscal policy, will be presented. 

This Summer school is aimed at beginners as well as at more experienced researchers. PhD students are encouraged to participate.


Interested people should send a CV and a recent research paper to: Hanane Bahala (hanane.bahala@ens.fr) BEFORE MARCH 31, 2011.

We will confirm acceptance by April 15, 2011. People working in organizations member of DSGE-net (Bank of Finland, Bank of France, Capital Group, Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, Norges Bank, Sverige Riksbank, Swiss National Bank) should register via their network representative.
