    Workshop 11th International Research Workshop “Methods for Ph.D.”

    Empirical research is seeking through methodological processes to discover, hopefully, nontrivial facts and insights. Beside choosing a topic and grounding an idea in theory, empirical research consists of gathering and analysing data as well as presenting results in scientific contexts.
    Our workshop tackles these steps of your research project:

    • Gathering data via (un)structured interviews and analysing standardized survey data,
    • using the computer for qualitative and quantitative data analysis.


    The regular workshop fee is 469 Euro (with accomodation and meals). The workshop fee is 299 Euro without accommodation (lunch and dinner are included).

    We are offering up to three funded scholarships to support refugee postgraduate students from Germany. Full details including eligibility criteria and how to apply for a scholarship can be found on the workshop website.

    It is possible to get a certificate on 5 credit points (according to the European Credit Transfer System).

    Conference Financial Stability Conference 2017

    The 5th joint Financial Stability Conference on
    “EU at Crossroads: How to respond to Misalignments in Bank Regulation and achieve a consistent financial Framework?”

    The conference takes a foremost policy-oriented stance to discuss some of the most crucial issues lying ahead. Central questions are the future prospects for international cooperation on regulation, and how to tackle the challenges for achieving a sustainable financial order in the EU. In this respect, the logic of existing bank regulation, the ECB policy as regards financial stability, and the issue of how to deal with non viable banks are controversial topics to be discussed in the light of new political constellations.

    Participation is free of charge (no fees). Registration is opened now. If you would like to attend, you can register via
