2023-2 GTAP 101 Course
"Introduction to Computable General Equilibrium Modeling in the GTAP Framework"
September 4 - October 22, 2023

Cover image for Computable General Equilibrium Models
Dates/Deadlines (USA Eastern Time Zone)
Course Application March 13 - June 18
Enrollment Mid-July

Coursework based on:
Introduction to Computable General Equilibrium Models, 3e
by Mary E. Burfisher

The objective of the GTAP 101 course is to engage participants in an active, team-based process of learning about the GTAP computable general equilibrium (CGE) model and its use in applied economic policy analysis. The curriculum emphasizes an intuitive and graphical treatment of economic theory in the CGE model and provides structured experiences in running the standard GTAP Model, v7 within the RunGTAP software environment.

General Attendee Reg Feb 23 - April 23

The goal of the conference is to promote the exchange of ideas among economists conducting quantitative analysis of global economic issues. Particular emphasis will be placed on applied general equilibrium methods, data, and application. Related theoretical and applied work is also welcome.

  • Handling sudden global disruptions (pandemic, war)
  • Handling slow onset disasters (climate change and biodiversity loss)
  • Innovation strategies of socio economic factors
  • Inequalities between and within countries
  • Globalization dynamics and financial markets
30th Annual Short Course in Global Trade Analysis
"Theory and Applications of Computable General Equilibrium Analysis with the GTAP Model"

Dates/Deadlines (USA Eastern Time Zone)
Course Application October 31 - March 5
Enrollment April
Lodging Reservations July 5
Phase 1 (Online) June 5 – July 30

The GTAP Short Course is an intensive training course in the economics of global policy analysis.

  • introducing participants to the standardized framework (GTAP Model, v7) for conducting global policy analysis in an applied general equilibrium setting
  • providing participants with hands-on training with software that has been tailored to instruction and collaboration in economic analysis with minimal software manipulation overhead
  • delivering participants an opportunity to interact with economists working on global trade and resource use issues
