Economics Research Seminar

The institute organizes a regular research seminar in which researchers from other universities and research institutions present their original research. Papers from all subject areas of economics are welcome. The seminar is publicly announced at the JKU, but it primarily addresses the employees of the Institute for Economics and students at our university who are interested in economic issues. If a paper is available, we will be happy to link it.

With the kind support of the "Linzer Hochschulfonds".
