Experimental Finance Summer School, June 18-19

Heidelberg University’s Alfred-Weber-Institute for Economics and the Society for Experimental Finance (SEF) held the Experimental Finance Summer School 2018 at „Schlosshotel Molkenkur“, Heidelberg (Germany).

The goal of the summer school wasto deepen students’ understanding and knowledge of the field of experimental finance. Students were also invited to attend the Experimental Finance Conference from June 20-22  at the same venue.

The Summer school aimed particularly for students from the following target groups:

  • Young scholars from finance and economics departments that do not benefit from a research group at their University, but are interested in pursuing research in Experimental Finance.
  • Young scholars from finance and economics departments that are embedded in an experimental group but want to improve their experimental skills and get an overview over some of the main fields in a systematic way.

The summer school venue is Schlosshotel Molkenkur, which is located on the hill above Heidelberg’s prestigious castle. While the location is quiet and a little secluded, it is nevertheless well connected to the old town, the castle, and the summit of the hill Königstuhl by the Funicular Railway. We believe the summer school venue to offer an inspiring atmosphere for the exchange of ideas and are very much looking forward to welcoming you there.
