The "RWI Transatlantic Research Exchange" is a scientific exchange program of RWI to promote international networking. The program is designed to promote scientific exchange between RWI researchers and North American research institutes in the field of economics. It supports both research stays by RWI scientists in the USA or Canada and research stays at RWI by visiting scientists from these countries. It thus complements the RWI Research Network of researchers from around the world. The exchange is intended to provide a platform for developing and strengthening joint research activities. Visiting scholars are also invited to participate in research seminars, mini-lectures and policy dialogues. In addition to scientific exchange, the program is designed to promote cultural exchange. 

Please contact your RWI contact person or if you would like to learn more about the possibilities of visiting RWI, having your doctoral students visit RWI, or hosting RWI scientists at your institution. 

For the period 2018 to 2023, the exchange program is supported by the Transatlantic Program of the Federal Republic of Germany with funds from the European Recovery Fund (ERP) of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK).
