The BeNA Skills Camp is a new format aiming at doctoral students in economics, who want to enhance their research skills.
The first skills camp was a Hands-On Introduction to Data Scraping offered by Carsten Schwemmer and was organized in cooperation with the Berlin Doctoral Program in Economics and Management Science (BDPEMS). The course took place from September 27th to October 2nd at HU Berlin and was organized as a block event consisting of 4 all-day sessions. 20 young researchers practised various different methods for extracting data from web sites. Further details about the content of the course can be found here.
