NGE: Next Generation Economics

NGE is a network for young economists that offers a forum for discussion and development of research projects at University of Hohenheim and University of Tübingen. For our upcoming monthly seminar series, we have gathered a fine line up to discuss research that is likely to shape future debates. We provide doctoral students and post-docs the opportunity to talk to our guests about research projects during office hours. Slots are assigned on a first come, first serve basis. If you are interested, please register following the doodle survey links below.
