Our research unit gets going

The German Research Foundation (DFG) has established eight new research units. This decision was recommended by the DFG senate and made official by the DFG Major Committee on December 9, 2021. Among these eight units is the research unit "Financial Markets and Frictions - An Intermediary Asset Pricing Approach" with spokesperson Prof. Dr. Marliese Uhrig-Homburg (KIT). This research unit, funded within the D-A-CH cooperation together with the Austrian FWF, is borne by finance researchers from Karlsruhe, Frankfurt, Tübingen, Stuttgart, Münster and Vienna and will be funded with about 3.5 million Euros in the first 4 years.
