Alfred Weber Portrait

  Named for the eminent Heidelberg economist and sociologist, the Alfred Weber Lecture brings renowned academics and policymakers to the University of Heidelberg. Their talks focus on economic policies and other socially relevant questions and illustrate the interdependence of politics, economy, and society to an audience of students, faculty, and the interested public of the region. Since 2007, the Alfred Weber Lecture has attracted a number of illustrious speakers, among them former German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble, the former president of the European University Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder), Gesine Schwan, the former director of the ifo-Institute for economic research, Hans-Werner Sinn, and the former president of Deutsche Bundesbank, Axel Weber.

Starting in 2018, the organizers will extend invitations internationally.
