A workshop titled “Matching: Theory, Applications, and Experiments” took place on June 8th and 9th at the Bellaterra Campus at the UAB, site of the Barcelona GSE Msc in the Economics of Science and Innovation program.
The workshop was sponsored by two of the founding academic institutions of the Barcelona GSE - the Department of Economics and Economic History of the UAB (UFAE) and the Institute for Economic Analysis (IAE-CSIC) - as well as by the Reference Center for Analytic Economics (CREA), the Barcelona GSE sister research institution.
