1. Analysis of Cross-Border Human Mobility– ACROSS, coordinated by Prof Beine (DEM).
2. Experiments, Ethics and Economics – 3E, coordinated by Prof Neugebauer (DF).
The DSEFM is interdisciplinary in nature. Its PhD students can be affiliated with DTUs coordinated by other departments of the University of Luxembourg.
The ACROSS doctoral training unit on ‘Analysis of Cross-Border Human Mobility’, funded by the PRIDE scheme of the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR), is a joint research programme of the Luxembourg Institute of Socio-Economic Research (LISER), the Department in Economics and Management (DEM) of the Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance (FDEF) and the National Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg (STATEC).

The Doctoral Training Unit (DTU) 3E – Experiments, Ethics and Economics – consists of an interdisciplinary consortium of 9 social scientists who use scientific experiments involving human subjects in their research. The objective of the consortium is to create a formal link for collaboration across the three existing social science research laboratories in Luxembourg, with the aim to push forward the state-of-the-art of what we know about human behaviour in economic interactions.

The Doctoral Training Unit on Enforcement in Multi-Level Regulatory Systems II (REMS II) is a joint research programme of the Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance (FDEF) and the Max Planck Institute Luxembourg for Procedural Law (MPI Luxembourg). DTU-REMS-II follows up the first DTU research programme on Enforcement in Multi-level Regulatory Systems running at the University of Luxembourg since 2017. Learn more
The Doctoral Training Unit (DTU) on Data-driven Computational Modelling and Applications (DRIVEN) trains cohorts of Doctoral Candidates who develop data-driven modelling approaches common to a number of applications strategic to the Luxembourgish Research Area and Luxembourg’s Smart Specialisation Strategies. The DTU creates a bridge between strong methodological core competencies and application domains by training each Doctoral Candidate both in state-of-the-art data-driven approaches, and in the particular application domain in which these approaches are expected to lead to new discoveries: Computational Physics and Engineering, Computational Biology and Life Sciences, Computational Behavioural and Social Sciences.

Michel Beine’s research interests are mainly about international economics, especially the economics of international migration. I investigate a broad range of issues such as migration of skilled workers, network effects, migration and climatic shocks, international mobility of students, mitigation of resource booms through mobility of workers and more recently evaluation of the IIA hypothesis in international migration with some possible econometric solutions.
He teaches international economics, econometrics, causal identification in econometrics and a course on the economics of international migration at the PHD level.

Tibor Neugebauer is passionate about doing research in Experimental Finance and Economics. In his research he uses laboratory data to study human behaviour in markets and social dilemmas and decision making under risk and uncertainty. He designs experiments to test the predictions of theoretical economics and finance and to study human behaviour in complex environments for which no theoretical solution exists.
He has conducted extensive research on the impact of institutional, informational, and economic incentive structures on human beliefs, learning, strategic interaction, and market outcomes. More recently, his scientific activity has focused on the interaction between algorithms and human subjects in asset markets.

The Doctoral Training Unit on Migration, Inequalities and Labour Markets (MINLAB) is a joint research programme of the Department in Economics and Management (DEM) of the Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance (FDEF), the Department of Social Sciences (DSOC) and the Department of Behavioural and Cognitive Sciences (DBCS) of the Faculty of the Faculty of Humanities, Education and Social Sciences (FHSE), and the Luxembourg Institute of Socio-Economic Research (LISER).
