Our Cluster of Excellence ECONtribute: Markets & Public Policy is pleased to announce the members of its Advisory Board. The ECONtribute Scientific and Policy Advisory Board (ESPAB) serves as an external advisor to the ECONtribute Steering Committee. The Board consists of five internationally-renowned and high-level researchers and policy makers, namely:

The ESPAB advises the Cluster on its strategic development, such as research, policy interaction and outreach activities, hiring strategy, equal opportunity and the Young ECONtribute Program (YEP).
The Cluster of Excellence ECONtribute: Markets & Public Policy is a joint initiative of the Universities of Bonn and Cologne and funded for the years 2019-2025 by the German Research Foundation in the German Excellence Strategy. The goal of the Cluster is to advance a new paradigm for the analysis of markets & public policy in light of fundamental societal and technological challenges. All research activities are organized under the roof of the Reinhard Selten Institute (RSI), a joint research institute of the Universities of Bonn and Cologne. The ECONtribute Network was established to promote two-way knowledge exchange between researchers and policymakers.
