The Department of Economics organizes a regular research seminar in which researchers from other universities and research institutions present their original research work. Papers from all areas of economics are welcome. The seminar will be publicly announced at the JKU, but it addresses above all the staff of the Department of Economics as well as students of our university, who are interested in economic issues.
Lunch Time Seminar
The Lunch Time Seminar provides an informal setting in which initial research ideas and "work in progress" can be presented. The seminar will provide an informal exchange and discussion on ongoing research projects and projects with members of the Department of Economics.
