The Marie Curie Training Programme in Applied Health Economics

‌Given the extensive use of individual level data in health economics, it has become increasingly important to understand the empirical methods available to applied researchers. Moreover, it is just as important to be aware of the limitations and pitfalls associated with each technique.

The aims of the Marie Curie Training Programme in Applied Health Economics were:

  • to introduce young professionals to the main techniques used in applied health economics,
  • to provide practical experience with the application of such techniques, and
  • to instil a code of good practice in the analysis of health data that will permeate the profession.

The programme consisted of three types of event:

  • A two-week training course that will impart the basic knowledge required for the practice of applied health economics,
  • 3-day “Master Classes” made up of practical workshops on data and software for applied health economics lead by internationally recognised econometricians and health economists, which will coincide with,
  • 3-day international conferences, part of the series of European Workshops on Econometrics and Health Economics.

The programme was aimed at PhD students and young European researchers (in the first 10 years of their research career) who were expected to participate in all three types of event.
