Research Our research topics and publications attract attention and demonstrate high social and international relevance. Department of Economics We mainly focus on the interaction of practice and theory and sharing our expert knowledge through: Discussion Papers In our discussion paper series professors, associate professors, and doctoral students present their reseach results. They are published on the the database "Research Papers in Economics" RePEc. RePEc is one of the most important databases for researchers in economics.
