19 - 20 April 2017 / Florence, Italy (EUI Premises) / Florence School of Banking and Finance (Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies, European University Institute)

Deadline for registration: 29 March 2017

This training course held by Steven Ongena (University of Zurich) will present the relevant research methodologies used in empirical banking, with a special emphasis on intertemporal (e.g., duration analysis and event study) and cross-sectional methods (e.g., matching).

The course will cover the following topics:
- Overview: Current empirical methods to evaluate regulatory policies
- Techniques: Heteroskedastic Modelling, Duration Analysis and Applications, Matching, Difference-in-Difference, Event Studies and Applications, Elements of an Identification Strategy.

The course is targeted, among others, at financial stability and research departments of Central Banks, Ph.D. students in Economics, Banking or Econometrics, and economists working in the private sector. An intermediate level in micro and macroeconomics, as well as in applied econometrics, is required to follow this course.

7 - 7 June 2017 / Florence, Italy (EUI Premises) / Florence School of Banking and Finance (Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies, European University Institute)

Deadline for registration: 17 May 2017

This one-day training course will be held by Fabio Canova (BI), Wouter den Haan (LSE) and Junior Maih (Norges Bank).

The course will present the most recent methods to study models with occasionally binding constraints and will be divided in three parts:
1. The first part of the course will deal with piecewise linear approxiations methods, presenting estimations of models solved with these techniques.
2. The second module will deal with Markov Switching specifications, solution, simulation and applications.
3. The third part of the course will present projection methods. These methods can easily deal with nonlinearities; in addition, dealing with occasionally binding constraints is trivial for projection algorithms.

It is expected that course participants have a good prior knowledge of dynamic macroeconomic models, including basic knowledge of perturbation techniques.
