The three major research areas are complemented by 'cross-sectional' areas that include business information systems, business and human resource education, economic and social history as well as statistics and econometrics. All research areas and cross-sections of the Faculty provide networking possibilities with other scientific disciplines. Additionally, the boundaries between the research areas are permeable, allowing scientists of different focal points to cooperate with one another across various collaborative projects.
Housed at the University of Göttingen, the Centre for European Governance and Economic Development Research (cege), plays an important role in combining cross-faculty research initiatives. Cege faculty members come from different disciplines such as economics, business, economic history, agricultural economics, law, and political science.
