Short report summer school 'Using EUROMOD for model family simulations'
The Centre for Social Policy (University of Antwerp) organized a Summer School on ‘Using EUROMOD for model family simulations’ from September 28 to 30, 2016. This Summer School combined the EUROMOD training course with an introduction to the new Hypothetical Household Tool, called HHoT. HHoT is a state-of-the-art tax-benefit tool for researchers who want to use model family calculations in a European comparative setting. It is a EUROMOD plug-in that has been developed jointly by the Institute for Social and Economic Research (ISER) and the Centre for Social Policy (CSP) in the framework of the InGRID project. During the Summer School 25 participants were taught how to use EUROMOD and HHoT by researchers from ISER and CSP. The course included a variety of lectures, live demonstrations and hands-on exercise sessions to familiarize participants with EUROMOD and HHoT.
