Rosemarie Nagel, ICREA Research Professor of the Department of Economics and Business (Universitat Pompeu Fabra), together with John Duffy (University of Pittsburgh) and Frank Heinemann (Technische Universität Berlin), organized the 4 days Barcelona LeeX Experimental Economics Summer School in Macroeconomics, which was offered on Universitat Pompeu Fabra from June 6 to 9.
In this intensive course, students from different nationalities were taught experimental methods and asked to develop their own experimental macroeconomic projects. This edition of the Summer School was followed by the 2nd LeeX International Conference on Theoretical and Experimental Macroeconomics, which took place on 10th and 11th June at the Ciutadella Campus of Pompeu Fabra University. Keynote speakers were Jean-Robert Tyran (University of Vienna) and Jordi Gali (CREI UPF). This two day conference was an effort to demonstrate that macroeconomics can also be an experimental discipline, which implied a strong collaboration between macroeconomic theorists and experimentalists.
