Visiting Professorships of the Austrian Economic Chambers

The cooperation between the Austrian Economic Chambers and the University of Vienna led to the establishment of the Visiting Professorship of the Austrian Economic Chambers in 2020, with the aim of appointing a visiting professor on the topic of monetary and capital market policy at the Faculty of Business, Economics and Statistcs every year. The scientist is entrusted with holding a lecture at the University of Vienna for one semester and will also contribute to the promotion of public discourse by participating in public events.


Due to Covid-19, the WKW Visiting Professorship 2020 unfortunately had to be suspended.
