Research Seminar in Management and Economics (Faculty 8)

The Research Seminar in Management and Economics at the RWTH Aachen School of Business and Economics is presently organized by the Chair of Energy Economics and Management at the Institute for Future Energy Consumer Needs and Behavior (FCN, Prof. Dr. Reinhard Madlener).


About the seminar:
The research seminar offers an informal venue for researchers to present and discuss their work. The seminar welcomes all research topics relevant for researchers in Management and Economics (except for those topics that better fit into the aim & scope of the AEP Brownbag Seminar).

The research seminar slots are usually organized as hourly blocks and take place on a weekly basis (except for one date per month reserved for the AEP Brownbag Seminar). Each presentation is followed by a general discussion. In the Winter Term 2022/2023, 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 seminar:
While the Research Seminar in Management and Economics mainly 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 to make an appointment.
