International research

We offer fundamental and internationally high-quality research in the fields of economics, international economics and econometrics and focus on socially relevant issues based on the latest scientific methods and high-quality research data.

Re­search pro­jects

The members of the department contribute their expertise to larger research networks as well as to work on relevant, more specific issues. Our collaborations transcend faculty and university boundaries.


Within the department, we create a lively scientific exchange through joint research projects or cross-chair semi
exchange - a good basis for publishing our results in high-ranking journals.

Re­search fo­cus

Our research focuses on four main topics: Globalisation and Global Markets, Cooperation and Competition, Data Science in Economics, Sustainable and Inclusive Development.
