17th European Health Economics Workshop

The 17th European Health Economics Workshop (EHEW) provides a forum that encourages the development, critical appraisal and dissemination of methodological research related to the health domain. The focus is on the discussion of microeconomic theoretical models applied to health economics, with a strong emphasis on applications of industrial organization, insurance economics, contract theory and public economics. Empirical and experimental papers are welcome provided that they make essential use of a theoretical model. Possible topics include (but are not limited to) optimal payment schemes, public and private insurance, competition in health care, regulation of pharmaceuticals, long-term care, etc.

The workshop is run over two days and comprises around fifteen papers. There are no parallel sessions and one hour will be dedicated to each paper, with presentations by the author and a nominated discussant. The number of participants is limited to around 40 people. Participants are expected to attend the entire meeting and take an active part as either author, discussant or chairperson.
