The Constance-Strasbourg Doctoral Programme in Quantitative Economics is a cooperation project between the Doctoral Programme in Quantitative Economics and Finance of the Department of Economics of the University of Konstanz and the Augustin Cournot Doctoral School of the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration of the University of Strasbourg. The cooperation is funded by the German-French University.

Doctoral students registered in both programmes can participate in the cooperation. They can attend lectures, seminars, conferences and workshops at the partner university. They can also spend a period of study and research at the partner university – mobility allowances for stays of up to 18 months are available. As part of the cooperation, doctoral students are also able to undertake a bi-national doctoral thesis (cotutelle de thèse) – with thesis advisors from both universities.

Contact at the University of Strasbourg is Professor Bertrand Koebel.

Contacts at the University of Konstanz are Professor Leo Kaas and Justine Overall.

Each year, the Constance-Strasbourg Doctoral Programme in Quantitative Economics organises joint workshops. Below is a list of the previous and forthcoming workshops:
