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 (winter semester 2021/22) our seminars will be in a hybrid format: In-person seminars take place on campus (new room, see below) and can be attended by UHH researchers and students. Please note the official hygiene rules of Universität Hamburg (3G/campus pass). All seminars are also live-streamed on Zoom, where all interested economists or students, including those from other institutions, can participate digitally.
To register for the Zoom meetings please follow the link.
The talks and discussion are in English.
Time: Tuesdays, 12.15 - 13.30 CET.
