AEP Brownbag Seminar (Faculty 8)

The AIXperimental Economics in Progress brownbag seminar at the RWTH Aachen School of Business and Economics is jointly organized by the Institute for Future Energy Consumer Needs and Behavior (FCN, Prof. Dr. Reinhard Madlener) and the Chair of Organization (Prof. Dr. Christine Harbring).


About the seminar:
The AEP seminar offers an informal venue for researchers to present and discuss their work (ideally) at an early stage. The seminar welcomes all research projects that involve an experimental research design (i.e., a lab, field, or survey-based experiment), (except for those topics that better fit into the aim & scope of the Research Seminar in Managment and Economics).

The AEP seminar slots are organized as hourly blocks and take place on a monthly basis. Each presentation is followed by a general discussion. In the Winter Term 2019/2020, we will meet on Tuesdays between 12:15-13:15 h in the seminar room 518 (WiÜ) located in `Sammelbau’, Templergraben 64, 5th floor.

Presenting at the AEP Brownbag Seminar:
While the AEP seminar originally serves as an internal platform for research exchange at the School of Business and Economics at RWTH Aachen University, we also welcome (especially) advanced PhD students and early career postdoctoral researchers from other institutions, who are interested in presenting their work at our faculty.
If you are interested in presenting your work, please get in contact with .
