  • April 2015: The European Commission, within the Framework Programme 7 (FP7), awarded Dr. Ciprian Necula a Marie-Curie Intra-European Fellowship (MC-IEF) with Professor Walter Farkas acting as scientist in charge. The research objectives of the project consist in exploring a new, realistic and parsimonious framework for modeling heterogeneity in economics and in investigating its implications for analyzing the volatility of financial assets. The project starts in April 2015 and has a length of 2 years. For more information, please follow this Link.

  • The Swiss National Science Foundation, mandated by the Swiss Federal government to promote scientific research, accepted a proposal of Professor Walter Farkas (joint with Dr. Pablo Koch-Medina of SwissRe). The project, titeled "Capital adequacy, valuation, and portfolio selection for insurance companies" is supported for two years, starting on 1. June 2012.

  • Due to the acceptance of a Sciex grant, Dr. Ciprian Necula will join our Team as a Sciex fellow on 1st October 2012. Sciex is part of the Swiss Contribution to the New Member States of the EU and is a promotion tool for research teams from all disciplines, consisting of team-members from the EU10 and Switzerland. Sciex Fellows from the EU10 pursue their research in cooperation with Swiss researchers in Swiss research institutions.
