Meta-analyses provide researchers with a new methodology to make out of sample predictions and draw broader conclusions from existing academic studies. How to make statements on external validity when starting with a sample of internally valid experiments is an area of growing academic interest and rapid methodological developments.

This workshop brought together researchers in the field of meta analysis in economics. The morning part of the workshop took the form of a masterclass during which the speakers will give an introduction to meta-analysis for researchers who think about adding this technique to their methodological toolkit. The speakers presented different meta-analysis techniques as well as their applications and  potential challenges. The second part of the day was devoted to research presentations on the topic.
