First virtual meeting of project team “Digging into High Frequency Data”

The international research team met virtually to discuss their recent findings and further steps for the project

The third team meeting of “Digging into High Frequency Data: Present and Future Risks and Opportunities” was held via Zoom on 14 May from 3 - 7pm. 

The interdisciplinary teams of researchers used this opportunity to discuss the current status of the project by presenting their recent work. At the end of the meeting, the team members decided on further work steps to reach the goal of the project: building a transatlantic securities markets database that can be easily used for research in Europe and the US.

The project is funded by Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) and 15 other international research bodies as part of the Trans-Atlantic Platform for the Social Sciences and Humanities.
