Matthias Kleiner, President of the Leibniz Association congratulates Graduates of the DIW Graduate Center

Bericht vom 7. Januar 2015

Last Friday, twelve junior scientists received their certificates at the 2014 Commencement Ceremony of the Graduate Center at the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin). They were congratulated by the Dean of DIW Graduate Center, Helmut Lütkepohl, the Executive Board of the DIW Berlin, as well as Matthias Kleiner, President of the Leibniz-Gemeinschaft. In his speech, Mr. Kleiner emphasized the importance of young talent and their ideas to science. Furthermore, he lauded the concept of the Graduate Center, as well as of the other Leibniz graduate schools, which guide students through their doctoral studies in close partnership with local universities and international research networks.

Marcel Fratzscher, President of DIW Berlin, stated on the occasion of the degree ceremony that, “Every year, the DIW Graduate Center graduates outstanding economists, who not only excel at research, but can also translate their results into sound policy advice. The variety of topics of the doctoral theses – ranging from labour markets to energy markets and asking many societally relevant questions – shows how well DIW Berlin educates its young scientists.”
The DIW Graduate Center, founded in 2006 with the help of the Leibniz-Association, provides a well-structured four-year PhD program in the field of economics for individuals from around the world. In close cooperation with Humboldt-University Berlin, Free University Berlin, Technical University Berlin, and the University of Potsdam, the GC combines coursework with practical work in the research departments of DIW Berlin. Students are selected out of the hundreds of national and international applications received annually.
