Social and Economic Behavior
Research at Cologne University within the broadly defined Competence Area II benefits from a diverse spectrum of cooperation and cross-faculty initiatives within the university. Examples are collaboration with Ethnology, Macroeconomics, Law, Marketing, Media Research, Neurosciences, Psychology and Sociology, as well as extra-mural cooperation with regional research partners such as the Max Planck Institute for Research on Collective Goods, the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies and the Jülich Research Centre. In addition, research work in this Competence Area is embedded within a worldwide network of close cooperation with renowned academics, e.g. the Naveen Jindal School of Management, University of Texas at Dallas and Columbia Business School (Columbia University).
