UPDATES for the Autumn Semester 2020 (08.09.2020):


The Doktorandenkolloquium and the Seminar will be held in Autumn 2020, on 19 November 2020 and 4 December 2020, respectively. More details to follow.


Please be aware that due to the limited max number of participants allowed in a lecture hall due to the Coronavirus, we have opted to give the lectures as zoom live streams and/or podcasts instead, with a possibility of viewing the lectures in retrospect as recorded presentations. We shall provide students with the link to the zoom meeting before the lectures, so please monitor the lectures section on our website.

The Research Network for Sustainable Finance will conduct academic and policy-based research on issues that relate to financial market regulation and environmental and social sustainability.   Related areas of research will include the governance of financial institutions and markets and their relevance to sustainability.   Research projects supported will be both disciplined based and interdisciplinary.  The network will also facilitate applications for academic research grants and for contracts to conduct policy-based research.  The network will be guided by a research advisory panel consisting of representatives from top research  universities and institutes.  The network will conduct outreach with practitioner bodies in the financial sector and with governmental and non-governmental bodies.
