About us

The Chair of Macroeconomics conducts research primarily on topics related to economic and social transformation. These include sustainability transformation and digitalization. Economic change is a very complex phenomenon that is difficult to capture with neoclassical equilibrium economics. Therefore, the research of the chair takes place from a complexity-economics and evolutionary perspective. In addition, post-Keynesian, institutional economics and behavioral economics approaches are also used. In addition to paradigmatic pluralism, methodological pluralism is also practiced at the Chair. While the methodological focus is on agent-based modeling, methods of experimental economic research and qualitative methods such as scenario analyses and surveys are also used. The chair is open to interdisciplinary collaboration. Our research has a strong application and policy orientation.
