The School combines its research activities with the training of young scientists, e.g. in DFG-funded Research Training Groups or in the Berlin School of Economics. The School closely collaborates with its partner institutions in Berlin, e.g. in joint research seminars, the support of early career researchers, and in joint professorships.

    The Faculty of Economics works together with Humboldt-Innovation GmbH (HI). As a 100% subsidiary and knowledge and technology transfer company of the university, it is the interface between science and business. On behalf of the university, HI promotes and administrates research and development contracts as well as contracts for scientific services between science and business / public authorities, advises and supports start-ups and spin-offs of the university.
  • Other special features
    The Faculty of Economics has its own non-profit association: The Wirtschaftswissenschaftliche Gesellschaft an der Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin e. V. (WWG) (The Economic Science Society at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin). The WWG supports students and young researchers with travel grants, finances Humboldt (Germany) and doctoral scholarships, organises lectures and discussion groups and supports the faculty in various ways (e.g. restoration of the Holy Spirit Chapel, renovation of lecture halls).
