Economic Perspectives on Societal Challenges: Equality of Opportunity, Market Regulation, and Financial Stability - EPoS


The Collaborative Research Center (CRC) TR 224 - EPoS, a cooperation of the University of Bonn and the University of Mannheim, addresses three key societal challenges:

  • how to promote equality of opportunity
  • how to regulate markets in light of the internationalization and digitalization of economic activity; and
  • how to safeguard the stability of the financial system.

The distinguishing feature of the CRC is that it views these challenges as inherently interconnected; its goal is to analyze and provide policy proposals that address them.

CRCs are long-term university-based research institutions, funded and established for up to 12 years by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG), in which researchers work together within a multidisciplinary research programme. They allow researchers to tackle innovative, challenging, complex and long-term research undertakings through the coordination and concentration of individuals and resources within the applicant universities.
