The RWI Leibniz Institute for Economic Research considers it a very important task to familiarize young people with the topics and methods of economics, to promote understanding of economics and, above all, to explain current economic contexts. For this reason, we launched "Ökonomie hautnah - Wirtschaft erleben" in 2017, an innovative and dialog-oriented student event in which economics-related topics and issues are discussed, reflected on and presented by upper secondary school students together with RWI researchers.

In an interactive program, the RWI - Leibniz Institute for Economic Research would like to bring topics and issues of economics closer, reduce fear of contact and show where economics plays a role in everyday life.

This year, "Ökonomie Hautnah - Wirtschaft erleben" took place on Tuesday, June 25, at the Haus der Technik in Essen.
