Modern Scientific Presenting and Personal Radiance

With the quality of your work, you have surely convinced the listeners in your own circle of experts already. If you want to expand your audience, it is recommendable that you adjust the presentation of your content accordingly. You should also present yourself as a personality in a professional way. After all, you yourself play a central role in a contemporary style of presentation!

Learning Outcomes

  • - Know how to arouse and maintain the interest of your audienceYou can explain the content of your research in a comprehensible and memorable way
    - Know various structures, openings and closings for presentations
    - Know how to boil content down to clear core messages
    - Develop a dynamic and engaging speaking style
    - Show confidence with body language and gestures
  • - Speak slowly, decisively and confidently
    - Understand your personal impression, your self-image and how others perceive you
    - Know how to deal with difficult questions
    - Use humor and keep your cool

The oratory skills training is based on elementary acting techniques, adapted to communication in the world of science and business. Short theory inputs are followed by a variety of practical exercises. A video camera will be used in some exercises.

About the Instructor
Willy Metzeler is a coach and an actor and has a Master of Science in Economics. Since 2005, he has been involved in work on communication and future leadership, coaching in various companies and universities in Europe.

Continuous-Time Heterogeneous-Agent Models: Inequality and Financial Stability http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.869390.en 12 - 16 June: 10-12h & 13-15h
14 June revision and assignment, not in person.

This course aims at giving tools to students for entering the frontier of research regarding two new lines of research: (a) models of wealth-inequality determinants and dynamics, and (b) models of financial stability. The focus will be on presenting general-purpose analytical and computational techniques that enable students to replicate and extend frontier-research papers in these areas. The course will focus on wealth-inequality/household portfolio models and on theoretical models of credit cycles, models of inside-money and liquidity, and models connecting endogenous financial-stability risk with macroeconomic performance.

Annual Summer Workshop from June 22th to June 23th 2023.

Econometrics of Energy Markets http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.833051.en

We are soliciting the first ARGE MASTERCLASS for doctoral Students and Postdoctorates of members of the ARGE (Arbeitsgemeinschaft deutscher wirtschaftswissenschaftlicher Forschungsinstitute).

The Masterclass consists of a combination of lecture and four presentations. The Masterclass is given by Christiane Baumeister (University of Notre Dame; NBER; CEPR). Structural vector autoregressions are the workhorse models in empirical macroeconomics. The goal of this course is to equip participants with state-of-the art Bayesian methods for empirical research and policy analysis. The first part of the course challenges the current practice of identifcation of VAR models by introducing a more general Bayesian framework that encompasses standard identifcation approaches as special cases. Drawing structural inference from VAR models requires making use of prior information.

This course provides formal tools of Bayesian analysis that allow to incorporate prior beliefs about both the structural coefficients and the impacts of shocks in a flexible way and to characterize the contribution of prior information. The second part of the course applies this framework to modeling the global oil market to study the determinants of oil price fluctuations and the macroeconomic consequences of oil price shocks.

Please send CV and in case of applying for a place in the student presentations, a paper/ extended abstract by March 15, 2023 to arge@diw.de.
Decisions will be sent by March 31, 2023.

9th BCCP Research Day http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.868179.en

Leibniz ScienceCampus
Berlin Centre for Consumer Policies (BCCP) Research Day

At this BCCP Research Day (formerly known as BCCP Forum), Fellows will give short pitches of their current research. Since we also want to have enough time for discussions and networking, we plan long coffee breaks between the presentation sessions as well as get-together afterwards.

The event will bring together all BCCP fellows in law and economics who are engaged in the activities of the science campus. We will have the opportunity to learn about each other’s research during short presentations by the different partner institutions followed by open discussion. The objective of the meeting is to encourage discourse and exchange and clarify the themes and aims of BCCP.
