The seminar series is a joint initiative of the CINCH Health Economics Research Center, University of Duisburg-Essen and the RWI Health Group. The seminar aims at connecting researchers from various fields of health economics using econometrics and experimental methods. Current research will be presented by researchers of all stages from inside and outside the collaborating institutions. The purpose is to foster exchange among early career and experienced researchers in the field. Scholars present their ideas which include preliminary research and research papers.

We are aiming for a combination of face-to-face and online seminars for the winter semester 2021/22 (as of 01.09.2021). Face-to-face sessions will be transmitted in parallel via zoom as a hybrid event. Due to the uncertainty regarding the pandemic development, it is possible that the scheduled face-to-face sessions will only take place online. We will post relevant updates here.
