EUROMOD is a tax-benefit microsimulation model for the European Union (EU) that enables researchers and policy analysts to calculate, in a comparable manner, the effects of taxes and benefits on household incomes for the population of each country and for the EU as a whole (see “EUROMOD”:

A EUROMOD user course will be held over three days from the 24th to the 26th of November. The aim of the course is to introduce new users to EUROMOD. The course will cover the following topics: structure, concepts, input data, documentation and applications of EUROMOD. It will combine lectures and demonstrations with hands-on exercises using the model.

EUROMOD is available for non-commercial use by academic researchers and those working in the not-for-profit and public sectors. There will be no charge for the course itself but participants will be expected to cover their own travel and subsistence costs.

Those interested in attending the course should submit an outline of their plans for using EUROMOD (i.e. topic, country selection and methodology). The outline should not be longer than 1 page. There is an option for one or two participants to stay at ISER for two weeks to work on research using EUROMOD following the course. Please indicate whether this would be of interest.

If you are interested in attending the course, please send the outline to “the EUROMOD team” by the 17th of September.

Participants will be selected on the basis of their research outline and all applicants will be notified by 1st of October.
