Universiteit Hasselt - Knowledge in action



Minimum 4, maximum 20

Participants are expected to bring a laptop computer with freeware R ( ) and MS Excel (2003 or later) installed on it.
They are expected to be relatively familiar with R. If not, on the first day we offer a general introduction to R that will enable participants to follow the rest of the course well.
Participants do not need prior experience in economic or infectious disease modelling.

Who should attend?

People who have an interest in quantitative research, and who want to learn about infectious disease models and health economic evaluation. Eg, health economists, (bio)statisticians and mathematicians who want to expand their toolbox, as well as health science professionals and policy advisors who want to have a deeper understanding of cost-effectiveness analysis when it is applied to vaccines.
