WZB Talks

What are the cutting edge questions researchers at the WZB are working on? Which new insights has WZB research to offer and where is more work needed?

The series "WZB Talks" provides the WZB community as well as interested external guests with the opportunity to get to know the WZB research agenda better: Researchers present their current work, followed by a discussion with the audience.

Due the coronavirus pandemic, WZB Talks are currently being held online as Zoom conferences. Log-in details are provided within the invitations for each seminar.

Some of the talks are recorded, the audio files are made available on this website, please see the link under the respective program entry.
