With the support of the Dr. Jost Henkel Foundation, the University of Düsseldorf established the Heinrich Heine Economics Professorship in 2011. With this, the university honors eminent personalities from science and practice who take a stand on the major economic policy issues of the day.
The Heinrich Heine Economics Professorship consists of two public lectures and a seminar with students of economics and business administration. The target audience of the public lectures are representatives from politics and business, generally interested people from the city and the surrounding area, and university members.
