Prof. Tripathi has been appointed as an associate editor of Econometric Theory (ET) for a four-year term starting January 1, 2010. ET is a leading field journal committed to publishing original contributions in econometrics. It is published by the Cambridge University Press and archived at JSTOR.
Prof. Matschke and Prof. Zimmermann have recently been named Fellows of the CESifo Institute in Munich. The CESifo Research Network brings together leading economists from around the globe and constitutes an ideal platform for the discussion of current applied and theoretical themes in economics, with an emphasis on public policy issues. The research network offers a wide range of network activities and functions as both a research tool and a publication platform for its members.
CESifo Fellows are internationally renowned economists who, after a research stay at CES or Ifo, have been invited to join the CESifo Research Network. Fellows may attend any CESifo-organised conference of their choosing, receive all CESifo publications, and benefit from additional CESifo services. Some Fellows further contribute to the network activities by organising conferences, acting as Coordinator for a given Network Research Area, becoming a member of the European Economic Advisory Group at CESifo, or a research professor at the Ifo Institute.
This brings the number of CESifo Fellow at the department to three, as Prof. Tripathi already is holding this honor.
