Several SAFE Researchers Receive DFG Funding

Five SAFE professors have secured funds for a second three-year period for their research projects under the “Financial Market Imperfections and Macroeconomic Performance” priority program of Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG). The central purpose of this program is to advance research in Germany at the intersection of macroeconomics and financial economics. In particular, the program aims at contributing to a better understanding of the way various financial market imperfections affect financial market stability, macroeconomic volatility and long-run economic growth.
