The chair of economics, esp. Macroeconomics, Spatial Economics and Regional Science is part of the Institute for Transport and Economics of "Friedrich List" faculty of Transportation and traffic sciences. Additionally, we cooperate with the Faculty of Business and Economics and supply courses for its students.
We look at problems of regional economics that are for instance dealing with location decisions or regional development. Besides, we deal with the effect of climate policy on cities as well as migration and household decisions.
