Dear Vi friends,
The Virtual Institute and UNCTAD's Trade Analysis Branch will offer scholarships to all selected participants of the first edition of the Vi online course on Economic Analysis of Non-Tariff Measures, to be held October 10 to December 4.
Developed for researchers from universities, research centres, and governmental and non-governmental institutions in developing and transition countries, the course aims at providing participants with the empirical tools needed to assess the impact of NTMs on trade and welfare. A hands-on technical course, the emphasis will be on the manipulation of data and the use of econometric tools.
Applicants must hold a Master's degree in Economics or Econometrics; or a Master's degree in Statistics or Finance, with a Bachelor's degree in Economics or Econometrics. Knowledge of the Stata statistical software and excellent English skills are also required.
The deadline for applications is September 2.
NB: For those of you who have already applied, please make sure you have completely filled out the application form, and uploaded your photo, CV and letter of institutional support. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
I hope you find this information useful, and that you will distribute widely among your professional networks.
