Training material – microeconomic analysis (PMMA program)
Our training material is now available and updated regularly through Mendeley, a free reference manager and academic social network. While not required in order to access the references, we strongly encourage you to create a Mendeley account and install Mendeley Desktop, as it is easier to navigate the various libraries, share references with your fellow researchers and create automatic bibliographies for your research papers.
If you register with Mendeley, you are welcome to “join” all the different PEP groups listed below to access these references within Mendeley, but please be careful not to delete any references.
