Chairman

Hi, I am Pien Baas and I am the chairman of the Econometric Game committee of 2021. Currently, I’m studying econometrics and live in Amsterdam. My committee and I will arrange everything for the 2021 edition, to make it an unforgettable experience for the participants. Sadly, last year the edition was cancelled due to the corona virus, and to not let that happen again we decided to host the event online. Since this is the first time, we are working hard to make it as great as it would be if it were in Amsterdam. I wish all the participants good luck and hope to see everyone online in April 2021!

Hi! My name is Jack and I am currently finishing my bachelor Econometrics at the University of Amsterdam. This year, I will arrange the facilities; places to stay, location of the event, etc., I will also interfere with the acquisition. As last year’s event, unfortunately, did not take place, we are extra motivated to make this year better than ever. We hope everyone enjoys the Econometric Game 2021!

Coordinator

Hi! My name is Daphne and I am the coordinator of the Econometric Game committee 2021. I am currently taking a year of my studies since I am in the board of the VSAE. Last year I was in the Econometric Game committee as well, and as you might know, we, unfortunately, had to cancel that edition. However, this makes me even more excited for coming event in April!

Hello everyone, my name is Koen. I finished my masters in Financial Econometrics last year and I am currently doing a master in Actuarial Science. I was a member of the Econometric Game committee 2020, where it was my task to come up with an interesting topic to base the case on. It was then my job to find and assist a professor who wants to create a challenging case for the participants to solve. After successfully completing this task, the Econometric Game 2020 was unfortunately cancelled due to Coronavirus. As I had already found a casemaker who made a very interesting case, we decided that I would do the committee again while keeping the case for the next edition. I hope you will all work on this case with the same enthusiasm that we had when creating it!
