Research Seminars

Research Seminars

Our research seminars serve as a platform for the presentation and discussion of current research done in economics and political science. Attendees from across the globe participate at present in our research seminars. The seminars are open to the public and can be attended by anyone who is interested. Please contact us to be placed on our weekly mailing list or if you are interested in becoming a presenter.

In order not to miss the latest information on a seminar, why not let us know which seminar you would like to hear about in the future.

I would like to be added to the following mailing list of the seminar

Research and Discussion Papers

Our research is current and demonstrates the expertise of our academic institution. We run numerous research projects and successfully secure funding from national and international institutions such as the Swiss National Science Foundation, the National Centres for Competence in Research, the European Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation). Our researchers are regularly awarded for their excellent research work, which contributes to the high national and international reputation of HSG, both among academics and practitioners. 

Here you may find the links to the Template for Discussion Papers, the Guidelines for Publishing Discussion Papers and the HSG Research Platform Alexandria.

Our researchers (Economics Department) publish their initial research results in their own series of discussion papers. The papers are published on the Research Papers in Economics (RePEc) database - one of the most important databases for researchers in Economics.

The latest discussion papers are listed below. You can download them from the RePEc.
