Summer Institute on Empirical Implications of Theoretical Models (EITM)
The University of Michigan will host the eighth annual Summer Institute on EITM: Empirical Implications of Theoretical Models this summer, June 15 through July 10, 2009. Funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), this program seeks to leverage the complementarity between formal models and empirical methods.
EITM is training a new generation of scholars to integrate theoretical models more closely, effectively, and productively with empirical evaluation of those models. The Summer Institutes are highly interactive training programs for advanced graduate students and junior faculty. They are led by teams of scholars from across the discipline who are working at the forefront of such empirical-theoretical integration.
