Trento Summer School in Adaptive Economic Dynamics
Trento Summer School in Adaptive Economic Dynamics is a yearly program promoted by prof. Axel Leijonhufvud with the aim of fostering education and training on subjects centered on a view of economic behavior as an intrinsically dynamic and adaptive process.
The goal of program is to develop those subfields and methods that we envisage will enable economists 10-15 years hence to more adequately address questions and problems that are not satisfactorily treated today.
The Trento Summer Schools aim to recruit some of the best young talent now entering economics into these areas.
We look for prospective students motivating their application by stating: “This subject is not taught at my university.”
Although the program can accept only highly qualified applicants, we try to ensure that a large group of universities and nationalities are represented in each School.
We hope in this way “to seed” new approaches to economics in faculties around the world.
The School is free of tuition fees.
The program is sponsored by:
- Axel Leijonhufvud, UCLA and University of Trento, Professor emeritus
- Enrico Zaninotto, University of Trento
