DFG funds new GRK at MGSE
German Research Foundation fosters new doctoral program at the Department of Economics
The German Research Foundation has granted funding for the international doctoral program "Microeconomic Determinants of Labor Productivity", starting October 2013. The program analyses the determinants of labour productivity on the microeconomic level considering individual decision making as well as the role of incentive systems, innovation and labor organisation. In particular, it focusses on heterogeneity of labor productivity in order to derive implications for workers, firms and policy makers.
The program provides funds for up to five doctoral students per year to pursue these questions within the structured framework of the Munich Graduate School of Economics (MGSE). Prof. Carsten Eckel serves as speaker of the new graduate program.
