Research Seminar in Economics

Program of the Summer Term 2021

Tuesday 2:00 pm (s.t.) to 3:00 pm

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the Research Seminar in Economics will continue as a webinar using Zoom (with a few sessions in the second half of the semester maybe taking place in person; we will keep you updated on this site). We aim at lively sessions with a fair amount of interaction. E-mail invitations with Zoom details as well as abstracts will be sent out about a week in advance. In case you have questions or wish to receive the Zoom link, please send an email to rsespam
