Joint doctoral colloquium from CRiFC and HHL under the topic "Research on Reporting, Communication and Perception at the Capital Market
On August 16-17, 2018, a joint doctoral colloquium with the Center for Research in Financial Communication and the Chair of Accounting, Auditing and Controlling at HHL was held as part of the fourth RIC conference. Under the title "Research on Reporting, Communication and Perception at the Capital Market", doctoral students from the Accounting and Finance from Central Germany as well as Professor Dr. Christian Pieter Hoffmann and Sandra Tietz discussed current research projects.
Professor Dr. Henning Zülch, holder of the chair of Accounting and Auditing at HHL highlighted the uniqueness and potential of the format: "Integrated Capital Market Communication is still Terra Incognita to many in the German Research Environment. As such, we are proud that we, as HHL, have occupied this topic so firmly and from an early stage. We are happy to contribute to the exchange within the community together with the University of Leipzig.”
Professor Dr. Christian Pieter Hoffman from the Institute of Communication and Media Studies of the University of Leipzig, added: “We discovered many links to our work in communication science. For the future, we see great potential to intensify our cooperation in teaching and research.”
After the first day, the participants came together for a spontaneous rooftop-party and networking, enjoying the view at Leipzig’s famous Thomaskirche before continuing their discussions in further panel-sessions on the second day.
