The one-day workshop for young researchers at the FernUniversität in Hagen (campus in Hagen) was a fine event! The main organizer Joscha Beckmann gratefully acknowledges funding from the European Commission via the Jean Monnet Programme. We had a great time with inspiring "work-in-progess" presentations from external PhD students from Belgium, France and Germany accompanied by structured and open discussions by internal CESA researchers. The topics covered climate, macro and health economics. Thanks a lot to all participants for their nice contributions.

We are looking forward to the next edition in 2025!

Joscha Beckmann (CESA) was interviewed by BBC News last week and commented on the latest inflation developments in Germany and the state of the German economy. According to his assessment, a slowdown in inflation dynamics could lead to a temporary end to interest rate increases by the European Central Bank. This could even provide scope for interest rate cuts in the medium term.
