Continued financing for the International Graduate Program "Evidence-Based Economics" secured until 2021

20.07.2015 – 23.10.2015

We are glad to announce that the funding for the International Graduate Program “Evidence-Based Economics” (EBE) by the Elite Network of Bavaria has been extended by another four years and is secured through 2021. We look forward to the next years of cooperation between the participating partners at LMU Munich, FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg, and the University of Regensburg.

The main innovation of the EBE research program is the integration of theory, empirical methods, and policy analysis in both training and research of students. It focuses on an integrated methodological approach which allows for substantive applications from different fields in economics, among them three main research areas: “Individual behavior and long-run outcomes in health and education”, “Incentives in firms and markets”, and “Institution design constrained by social norms and material incentives”.
