The CEAR/Huebner Summer Risk Institute exposes Ph.D. students and interested faculty in risk and uncertainty to relevant cutting-edge models, tools, and theory. Our audience is primarily comprised of faculty and Ph.D. students interested in the economics of risk who are located at colleges and universities that do not have access to specialized seminars and courses in these areas. Lectures are conducted by leading scholars in the fields of risk and uncertainty located at Georgia State University and elsewhere.

The 2015 CEAR-Huebner Summer Institute features distinguished lecturers such as John Quiggin (University of Queensland) and Liran Einav (Stanford University), among others. Interested scholars are welcome to attend, space permitting. Please email Stephen Shore to register for the institute. Limited financial support may be available for interested doctoral students for travel to Atlanta.
