The research environment at the department is dynamic and international. We sustain a number of research collaborations with scholars around the world, and host numerous international visitors each year. Many researchers are members of networks such as the NBER, CEPR and CESifo*.
Our PhD students are an important part of our research environment and our PhD programme is considered one of the very best in Europe. Our researchers regularly publish work in top journals. The department is host to the Scandinavian Journal of Economics, and members of our faculty serve as Editors and Associate Editors of leading scientific journals.
The department organizes a weekly higher seminar hosting invited, mainly international, scholars. In addition to a more informal Brown-bag seminar, there are also several other seminars for faculty and PhD students each week, in fields such as labour and applied microeconomics.
