Munich is a popular meeting place for economists from all over the world. Since the establishment of the Center for Economic Studies (CES), more than six hundred economists have participated in the programme. The CESifo Research Network arose from this programme.
With CESifo, the visiting researcher programme has been considerably expanded. Now visiting researchers have the opportunity to interact with both members of the LMU faculty of economics and to hold lectures at CES and also to establish contacts with the empirically based research departments of the Ifo Institute. At Ifo the visiting researchers can also access the infrastructure, in particular the extensive data of a major economics research institute (Ifo DataPool).
The Ifo Institute and CESifo invite economists to come to the Institute as visiting researchers to intensify their contacts to Ifo staff and establish the foundations for joint projects. read on Visiting researchers at the Ifo Institute
