RTG 2484 Regional Disparities and Economic Policy

The doctoral research training group (RTG) 2484 – β€œRegional Disparities and Economic Policy”, funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and jointly instituted in 2019 by the Technical University Dortmund, the University of Duisburg-Essen, and the Ruhr UniversitΓ€t Bochum.

The overarching goal of the RTG is to provide an outstanding education for doctoral students in its research area while at the same time contributing to frontier research in its field. Combining the expertise of scholars from different economic backgrounds (e.g. labor, public, macro) and thus different methodological skills, institutional knowledge, and data access, establishes a research training group that promises internationally visible scientific output and an excellent academic training environment for PhD candidates in Economics.
