The Capital Markets Union foundation project publishes and promotes, in particular, research reports. These should be in line with the objectives of the foundation's project. Eligibility for funding is determined in particular by the practical relevance of the specific research topic. The core questions to be investigated in research should therefore address topics and problem areas that are of high interest for bank and capital market financing in Germany and Europe from a scientific, financial and real economic perspective.

The research reports are prepared by the commissioned scientists and in dialogue with practitioners. These are financial experts and capital market specialists from banks, law firms, auditors and the real economy. The project results are presented jointly by academics and practitioners in workshops and at conferences and events and are thus disseminated. In addition, the research reports and a summary of the results can be published on the joint website of the foundations and the foundation project.

Ideas for concrete studies and scientific reports can be sent to the executive boards of all three foundations via the German Foundation Centre (see contact details).
