Online Research Seminars in Finance

In this challenging time due to COVID-19, we organize this online research seminar series now for the fourth time to continue the exchange between academics and practitioners and to bring top academic research to a broader public forum.

The seminar has been initiated by Peter Limbach (University of Bielefeld and CFR) and is organized by him as well as Aydin Aslan and Peter Posch (University of Dortmund). We thank Christian Andres and Nic Schaub (WHU), André Betzer (University of Wuppertal), Hendrik Hakenes (University of Bonn), and colleagues from various European and U.S. universities for their support.

We are proud to present internationally recognized academic speakers and kindly invite you to join the discussion on Zoom (please subscribe below).

If you have any questions, send an email to jfs@firrm.de.
