Transatlantic Research Exchange

Transatlantic Research Exchange

About us

The RWI Transatlantic Research Exchange intends to promote the scientific exchange between researchers of RWI and North American research institutes in the field of economics. It supports both research visits of RWI researchers to the US or to Canada as well as research stays of guest scholars from these countries at RWI. As such, it complements the RWI Research Network of researchers from around the globe. The exchange is expected to provide a platform to develop and strengthen mutually beneficial research projects. Guest scholars are further invited to contribute to research seminars, mini-lectures, and policy dialogues. In addition to the scientific exchange, the program is also intended to encourage cultural exchange.

Get in touch with your contact at RWI or   if you are interested in learning more about the options of visiting RWI, having your PhD students visit RWI or hosting RWI researchers in your institution.

For the period from 2018 to 2020, the exchange program is supported by funds from the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi).
