The "Peter und Elke Stoffers Stiftung" (PES) is a partner of the Kiel Institutes "Advanced Studies Program".
The Advanced Studies Program in International Economic Policy Research (ASP) brings together every year since 1984 a small multicultural group of approx. 20 smart and motivated students (with a Master degree or already Ph.D candidates) and young professionals to the Kiel Institute for a profound training of skills pertinent to economic analysis, methods of empirical research and the evaluation of economic policies.
Internationally renowned professors from leading universities teach their area of specialization in intensive one or two week courses. This rigorous and up-to-date academic teaching by prominent professors is reinforced by an outstanding alumni network and access to the resources of a leading Research Institute which makes it a unique program worldwide.
