Research profile of the Department of Taxation, Accounting and Finance

The TAF department shows a high level of interest and commitment in basic and applied academic research. This joint commitment of all members of the department leads to outstanding scientific work, which is widely visible both in DFG projects and in high-calibre specialist articles in national and international journals.

The idea of cooperation is particularly important to the department. This is also reflected in the large number of high-calibre guests from Germany and abroad at the TAF Research Seminar. The Centre for Risk Management (CeRiMa) and the Centre for Tax and Accounting Research (CETAR) also make a significant contribution to the department's research landscape with research workshops and projects. CETAR aims to contribute to gaining valuable insights into the effects of taxes, accounting and the associated business decisions. Many current research papers can be found in the TAF Working Paper Series published by CETAR. The members of the department not only highly value the value of cooperation within the department, but also intensively seek out and successfully pursue cooperation with other departments, other faculties and other universities in the national and international fields.
