The research seminar “Quantitative Economics” is jointly organized by professors of the Department of Economics and the Department of Socioeconomics. Its main goal is the scientific discourse between national and international researchers in quantitative economics, with a focus on macroeconomics, financial economics, and international economics.
This semester our seminars will be either in-person (hybrid) or via Zoom. The in-person seminars take place on campus and can be attended by UHH researchers and students. They will also be live-streamed on Zoom, where all interested economists or students, including those from other institutions, can participate digitally. Please note the official hygiene rules of Universität Hamburg.

The talks and discussion are in English.
Time: Tuesdays, 12.15 - 13.30 CET.
