Research seminars

To promote scientific exchange, the Center for Social and Economic Behavior (C-SEB) organizes two research seminars on various topics in Behavioral Science on a regular basis. In the Seminar in Applied Microeconomics, scientists from the University of Cologne present current research projects to a wider audience. The ECONtribute and C-SEB Research Seminar offers external guests working at the interface between economics and psychology the opportunity to present their research at UoC. The research seminars take place on Tuesdays from 12:00am-1:00pm and 1:30pm-2:45pm in room 3.206 (3rd floor) of the Student Service Center (SSC, Universitätsstraße 22a, 50937 Köln). If you would like to present your research or give one of your guests the opportunity to present their work at UoC, we kindly ask you to follow the respective links below.
