Applications are now being accepted for a summer school on Experimental Auctions that I've co-taught with Rudy Nayga and Andreas Drichoutis for 3 years. In the past we've had the summer school near Bologna Italy organized by Maurizio Carnavari, but this year we're venturing out to Crete, Greece. The course is from July 7 to July 14, 2015 at the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Chania.
Experimental auctions are a technique used to measure consumer willingness-to-pay for new food products, which in turn is used to project demand, market share, and benefits/costs of public policies. We've had a fantastic time in the past and I'm looking forward to this fourth offering, which is approved for credit hours through the University of Bologna. The content is mainly targeted toward graduate students or early career professionals (or marketing researchers interested in learning about a new technique). You can find out more and register here.
For a little enticement, here a picture of the venue.
