Summer 2020

Essen Health Economics Seminar Series

The seminar series is a joint initiative of the CINCH Health Economics Research Center, University of Duisburg-Essen and the RWI Health Group. The seminar aims at connecting researchers from various fields of health economics using econometrics and experimental methods. Current research will be presented by researchers of all stages from inside and outside the collaborating institutions. The purpose is to foster exchange among early career and experienced researchers in the field. Scholars present their ideas which include preliminary research and research papers.

Due to the ongoing situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, the seminar series will be held in a virtual format. To receive access to the virtual seminar room, please subscribe to the mailing list as indicated below. The virtual seminar will not be recorded as we want to encourage participants to present preliminary work. However, due to capacity constraints of the DFNconf-tool, the seminar may be streamed and shared via a separate link.
