The Department of Economics at the University of Zurich plays a leading role in the academic world. Our motto is “Pioneering Economics”.
With our forward-thinking attitude and multidisciplinary approach, we have entered uncharted territory. Our ambition is to find answers to the most pressing questions of our time and to offer direction to students, to leaders, and to policy makers alike.
At the Department, we encourage our researchers to approach their research projects fearlessly, openly – with ambition and curiosity. It is our belief that this is the way to achieve groundbreaking results, which can help change the world for the better. In this film project, we take you on a journey into the world of research.
You will gain insights into three research areas, which are presented through portraits of nine scientists. Each of the three videos is about four minutes long. The focus is on the researchers’ passion for their topics, illustrating the fascinating and interdisciplinary field of economics.
