Specifically targets those wanting to become modellers. It introduces the participants to economy-wide model building, using specialised modelling software. While the material is driven by the economics of models, the major focus is on actual model building techniques. This workshop does not require prior knowledge of model building, but is technically more difficult than either of the other two workshops. It does assume a basic understanding of SAMs.
