The participating institutions conduct research at the interface between business ethics, psychology and economics. The seminars offer lectures by well-known academics, with an emphasis on direct communication between speakers and participants. Practical workshops round off the programme. Seminar participants receive an official certificate of attendance issued by the Akademie.
