Regional students gather for Frontiers in Market Design

The Centre for Market Design has hosted an enthusiastic group of next-generation market design scholars from universities including Curtin, Wollongong, James Cook, RMIT, Adelaide, Western Australia, New England, Queensland, Sydney and ANU, at the inaugural Hordern Winter School on Frontiers in Market Design and Analysis.

The group of 20 students are emerging leaders in market design and spent three days at the University of Melbourne in mid-July, immersed in modern microeconomics.

On behalf of the CMD, Simon Loertscher (Director) and colleagues David Byrne (Director of Capability Building) and Siqi Pan, welcomed the students for classes, collaboration and conversations to spark ideas and form lasting relationships.

“The students were engaging, and we all benefited greatly from three days of presentations and discussions about theory, practice and fresh perspectives on market design and analysis,” says Professor Loertscher.

“We thank the Samuel and June Hordern Endowment and the Faculty of Business and Economics at the University of Melbourne for their generous support that allowed us to hold this Winter School, and hopefully many more in the future.”
