Structural Econometrics Group

The Structural Econometrics Group is an informal initiative by researchers at Tilburg University's School of Economics and Management. Our group currently involves faculty and students from the Econometrics and OR (EOR), Economics (ECO), Marketing (MKT), and Finance (FIN) departments.

We share an interest in structural econometrics and computational economics. We use these in empirical applications in industrial organization, marketing, finance, development economics, household economics, health economics, labor economics, and other fields.

We come together in our weekly SEG lunch meeting, which is held on Wednesdays, from 11.50 to 12.50:

    • Everybody is welcome! This includes students in the Research Master programs.

    • Lunch is provided.

    • Usually, we have an internal presenter who talks about his or her own research. This is most of the time a Ph.D. student. The goal is to have a discussion that benefits both the presenter and the audience.

    • Sometimes, we have an external speaker.

    • See the events calendar for details.

    • Regarding the topic, we interpret structural and computational economics broadly. There is certainly room for reduced-form papers, but we do like to think about the results through the lens of theory.

Please sign up with Tinghan Zhang if you are at Tilburg University and would like to present. If you have any other questions or suggestions, please contact Jaap Abbring or Tobias Klein.

We also teach Ph.D. courses on the topic, organize workshops, and invite external speakers. These presentations are often scheduled in one of the many official seminar series.
