2nd UNamur-UCL Winter School on Networks in Economics and Finance

During the past decade, both academics and policymakers have recognised the importance of studying interconnectedness and complexity. The objective of our winter school and the associated events over this full week of events is to assess recent progress made in the application of networks for modelling economic and financial systems with an emphasis on econometric issues.
