This was the third edition of a highly specialized training led by Prof. Jeffrey Wooldridge (Michigan State University) supported by the teaching associates Alaitz Ayarza, Alice Dominici, Olatz Roman (European University Institute).

The previous edition took place online (2020 -2021) and in Florence (2019-2020).
