Our researchers share their passion for economic research
Pi­o­neer­ing eco­nom­ics is what the De­part­ment of Eco­nom­ics stands for. Pi­o­neer­ing, be­cause its re­searchers rou­tine­ly push bound­aries and ven­ture into com­plete­ly un­chart­ed ter­ri­to­ry. Eco­nom­ics, be­cause the De­part­ment is firm­ly root­ed in the glob­al com­mu­ni­ty of econ­o­mists. In a film project, re­al­ized in 2020, the De­part­ment of Eco­nom­ics takes you on a jour­ney into the world of eco­nom­ic re­search. You will gain in­sights into three re­search ar­eas, which are pre­sent­ed through por­traits of nine sci­en­tists. The fo­cus is on the re­searchers’ pas­sion for their top­ics, il­lus­trat­ing the fas­ci­nat­ing and in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary field of eco­nom­ics.
