Today, the large number of complex tasks and problems within the fields of economics can only be solved through a combination of means: economic expertise, the application of advanced quantitative methods and modern computing technology.
With this idea in mind C.A.S.E. was created. It serves as an institutional framework, bringing together extraordinary high qualified researchers from the different universities and scientific centers in Berlin, with a background in statistics, mathematics and economics to find solutions for a better economic understanding.

Director: Prof. Dr. Wolfgang K. Härdle
Vice-Director: Prof. Dr. Daniel Klapper

The Econ Boot Camp took place between 15th and 18th January 2015, it was a great success and a pleasure for all participants. EBC is a Germany-wide unique workshop which gives 30 interested and dedicated pupils a first insight into the many different facets of VWL (Economics) studies. The pupils worked together with HU professors, graduates and students on different practical topics of modern economic research. Please click here for more information.

Professor Joel L. Horowitz (Northwestern University, Illinois, USA) was nominated for an Honorary Doctorate on 10th June 2014

We are very sad to announce the untimely passing of long-term C.A.S.E. member Prof. Dr. Christian Kirchner. Professor Kirchner was a reliable and popular colleague who enriched the scope of C.A.S.E. He will be missed. Please click here for the German obituary notice.
