Graz Schumpeter Winter School 2024
We are happy to announce the return of the Graz Schumpeter School in 2024 as a Winter School from 15th to 19th of January 2024 after a hiatus related to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Agent-based models (ABMs) are highly versatile and allow, among others, for detailed agent-heterogeneity, localized interactions, path dependency and out-of-equilibrium dynamics. While ABMs are widely used in many different disciplines, they are still underutilized in economics. This year’s Graz Schumpeter Winter School is a prime opportunity to obtain state-of-the-art knowledge of agent-based modelling in economics and discuss future directions with top researchers in the field.
