6th JRC Fiscal policy modelling workshop

The JRC is organising the 6th JRC Fiscal policy modelling workshop which will take place on 7-8 March 2024. It focusses on the use of economic modelling for fiscal policy analysis.

The workshop gathers leading researchers and policy analysts working on topics closely related to the JRC’s own research agenda. Specifically, this year’s workshop covers high quality and topical research on macroeconomic modelling with household heterogeneity, tax-benefit modelling at the household level, and corporate taxation. The contributions in each session will be linked directly to the ongoing policy work and debate. This year the workshop is planned to take place in hybrid format over two days, with all speakers and chairpersons expected to be at our Seville premises.
