Barbara Fritz from Freie Universität Berlin at Unicamp and University of Buenos Aires, February & March 2018
Barbara Fritz from Freie Universität Berlin went to UNICAMP, to act as a member of the PhD defense committee of Saulo Abouchedid.
Mr. Abouchedid had presented his PhD project as a local participant at our UNICAMP workshop in 2015, and as invited PhD student again in New Delhi 2016.
As a result of these contacts, he spent a year in Berlin, funded by a Brazilian fellowship, under the supervision of Prof. Fritz, which thus assumed the position of second supervisor. This joint PhD supervision with the UNICAMP coordinator, Prof. Daniela Prates, is an additional outcome of the network.
From there, she went to visit the University of Buenos Aires (UBA) in order to increase the cooperation in research and teaching methods between the two universities involved and to discuss the possibilities of holding a workshop in Buenos Aires in a potential next period of the network project. She gave a presentation on „The IMF to the Rescue: Did the Euro Area benefit from the Fund’s Experience in Crisis fighting in Emerging Markets?”
