The Enrico Fermi Research Centre – CREF (Rome) and UNU-MERIT (Maastricht), in collaboration with the Young Scholar Initiative of the Institute of New Economic Thinking are now calling for submissions to the first Economic Fitness and Complexity spring school, which will be held on June 5-9, 2023 in Rome, Italy. The school is an extensive introduction to the economic complexity framework, with theoretical and practical lessons. The first three days will focus on theoretical and practical classes covering the following topics: economic complexity measurement, network theory, machine learning, measurement of relatedness. Theoretical lectures will be followed by coding labs, where participants will have the chance to apply the methodologies introduced in class, and to carry out assigned group projects, focusing on the school core themes. For the last two days of the school, many world-wide renowned scholars have been invited to present their frontier research linking economic complexity with economic development, economic geography, labour economics, sustainability, economics of science, and innovation policy.
