Event series

Here you will find an overview of the series of events and previous lectures held by the WWG.

"HORIZONS" lecture series

"HORIZONS" is a collaboration between the WWG and Humboldt-Forum Wirtschaft (the Humboldt Forum for Business). This series of lectures is designed to look beyond the horizon of economics. Together, scientists or representatives discuss interdisciplinary topics with friends and members of our School. Our guests included Isabel Schnabel, professor of financial market economics at the University of Bonn and member of the Council of Experts, Michael Wolffsohn, historian, journalist and professor of modern history (emeritus), and Dieter Kosslick, former director of the Berlin International Film Festival.
