Volkswirtschaftliches Forschungsseminar

Das Seminar findet während der Vorlesungszeit immer mittwochs ab 12 Uhr c.t. im Raum 301 im WiWi-Gebäude statt (sofern nicht anders angegeben).

Jede(r) Lehrstuhlmitarbeiter(in) und Professor(in) ist herzlich eingeladen, einen Vortrag zu halten und anschließend mit allen Teilnehmern zu diskutieren. Dabei können die Inhalte sehr frei gewählt werden, von ersten Forschungsideen bis hin zur Vorstellung von Ergebnissen und kompletten Papieren.

Gerne können auch externe Referent(innen) vorgeschlagen werden. Die Einladung sollte dann jeweils dezentral organisiert werden. Reisekosten können evtl. vom Dekanat übernommen werden. Dies ist vom Einladenden jeweils selbst zu klären.

Die Vorträge (inklusive Diskussion) finden auf Englisch statt und sollten auf 1,5 Stunden begrenzt sein.

Bei Fragen wenden Sie sich bitte an Dr. Marina Dodlova.
