Research Seminar.

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. If a paper is available, we like to link it.


With friendly support of the  "Linzer Hochschulfonds".
