CEAR/Huebner Summer Risk Institute aims to expose Ph.D. students and faculty interested in risk and uncertainty to relevant cutting-edge models, tools, and theory. The targeted audience includes faculty and Ph.D. students interested in the economics of risk but who are located at colleges and universities that do not have access to specialized Ph.D. seminars courses covering the most recent research advances in these areas. The institute consists of lectures given by leading scholars in the fields of risk and uncertainty.

The third annual institute will be held July 20th to July 22nd, 2016 in Atlanta. The institute is sponsored by Georgia State University’s Center for the Economic Analysis of Risk and the S.S. Huebner Foundation for Insurance Education.
