General Information

The VU Econometric Forecast Challenge is an annual contest which allows students to show their skills in predicting time series. Two editions exist, one for 3rd year bachelor students and one for masters students enrolled at a Dutch university. Both editions start on March 5, 2018 and end on May 20, 2018. This year we have only one round with 5 real time series and 5 simulated time series. Both editions will use the same time series set. Successful enrollment will be achieved by following these steps:

  1. Form a team with at most three persons. (Individual applications are allowed as well)
  2. Register on February 12, 2018 and onwards using the following link: Application Form
  3. Wait for an email containing all relevant information.
  4. Have fun forecasting the future!
