The seminar topics will include:
Strategies and Analysis for Economic Development Using REMI PI+
This is a comprehensive introduction to the REMI family of models. Using REMI’s PI+, we will evaluate the economic and demographic affects of a policy. What will adding a new industry to a region do to the economy? Alternatively, what affects will the addition of an infrastructure project have on long-term economic growth? PI+ provides the answer to these sorts of policy development questions.
Mining and Natural Resource Management
REMI will analyze a uranium mining project around the Athabasca basin to better understand the short and long-term economic impacts of labor and capital investments.
Transportation and Economic Development: Evaluating Transportation Improvement Projects as a part of the Urban Highway Connector Program
It is easy to estimate jobs from construction—however, what happens when the orange cones disappear? Our discussion includes project prioritization as well as regional economic impacts over time. Topics include transportation network change (travel demand), benefit/cost analysis, population change, and economic development.
Hands-on Demonstration of REMI Model (please bring laptop)
At REMI, our goal is to improve public policy. The information presented at this seminar will enable you to make more detailed and efficient forecasts about the economic effects of policy changes.
