The dynamic short course consists of a mix of daily lectures, lab assignments, and informal discussions designed to introduce participants to the basic features of the Dynamic GTAP Model. These activities culminate in a major application undertaken by small groups and presented on the final day of the course. Groups are assigned an instructor who is intimately familiar with their project to act as a resource person. Our goal is for participants to leave with the capability of conducting and analyzing their own GDyn simulations.


  • To introduce participants to a dynamic model designed for conducting global trade analysis in an applied general equilibrium setting.
  • To provide participants with ample hands-on training with software that has been tailored for undertaking analysis using a dynamic recursive model.
  • To give participants the opportunity to interact with economists working on global trade and resource use issues using a dynamic modeling framework
