Tobias Wendler receives DFG funding for research stay at Tilburg University

Tobias Wendler has successfully obtained funding from the German Research Foundation (DFG) under the Walter Benjamin Program. This will enable him to implement a research project during a six-month stay at the "Tilburg Sustainability Center" with Professor Sjak Smulders.

The research stay will serve to work on a joint research project that will examine the effects of climate policy measures on labor market outcomes in European regions. Special attention will be paid to the heterogeneity of these effects and their causes.

The Department of Economics at Tilburg University is one of the leading faculties in Europe, especially in the fields of technological change, environmental policy and econometrics. Thus, the research stay offers promising networking opportunities beyond the specific project.

The DFG's Walter Benjamin Program supports research stays by particularly qualified postdocs in the early stages of their academic careers. The program supports thematic development and the mobility required for this.

The start of the research stay is planned for September 2022.
