Projektstudium (Ökonomie von Epidemien)
Welcome to the webpage of: Projektstudium (Ökonomie von Epidemien).
The introductory event will take place on 29.4.2020 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. probably online. If you are interested in the project, please send an email directly to Prof. Dr. Marco Runkel . You will then receive an invitation link for the online event on time. The number of participants is limited.
The project deals with the economic aspects of epidemics. It will consist of two parts:
1. the first part will deal with the mathematical basics (dynamic optimization, optimal control theory) and the basic epidemic model (SIS model). This part will take the form of a literature seminar where each student will have to lead a session.
2. in part two selected journal articles will be approached dealing with theoretical models on the economics of epidemics. Each student will deal with one article, which he/she must present in a presentation and a term paper.
