The RDC forms the foundation for the empirical and computer supported (numeric) theoretical research of the CRC 649.
It is the CRC internal platform for the exchange of software and numeric algorithms.
The RDC also hosts and provides access to the discussion papers. It is open to other DFG-financed (German Research Foundation) research projects.
The goal is the creation of a communication network concentrated on the empirical risk research and economy research for data and algorithms between physically separated research groups.
The RDC fulfils thereby a pioneering role in the realization of the science council’s recommendation to strengthen and advance empirical economic research in Germany.
