Online Research Seminars in Finance

In this challenging time due to COVID-19, we organize this online research seminar series for the third 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 Cologne and Centre for Financial Research) 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). We also provide a live stream of some seminars on our YouTube channel.

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