We are a research institute attached to the Department of Economics at the University of Bonn. Our two subdivisions are the Finance Group and the Statistics Group.

The Statistics Group covers a variety of topics in modern econometrics and statistics, ranging from questions in applied and theoretical microeconometrics to problems in non- and semiparametric statistics, functional data analysis and high-dimensional statistics. Six professors, several postdocs and PhD-students make up the Statistics Group.
