The "RWI Transatlantic Research Exchange" is a scientific exchange programme between researchers of RWI and North American research institutes in the field of economics. The programme is supported by a grant from the Transatlantic Programme of the Federal Republic of Germany, made possible by funds from the European Recovery Program (ERP) of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi). It supports both research visits of RWI researchers in the US or in Canada as well as research stays of guest scholars from these countries at RWI.
