RWI reaches people from different target groups every year with numerous events: National and international scientists participate primarily in the regular RWI research seminars as well as in RWI scientific workshops and conferences. The interested public is addressed, among other things, by the RWI economic talk and RWI's regular participation in the "Wissensnacht Ruhr". RWI organizes the annual interactive event "Ökonomie hautnah" for pupils. In addition, RWI doctoral students regularly supervise and advise groups of students at the "Young Economic Summit" (YES!).
