Welcome to the Düsseldorf Institute for Competition Economics (DICE)!

Our research and teaching mainly deals with current topics in competition economics. Our researchers consider questions concerning merger control, abusive practices of firms, vertical or horizontal business relations, the regulation of network industries, or the essential institutional framework for effective market competition. Strong methodological competencies and a focus on applications characterize our excellent education and the promotion of junior researchers.

In addition to excellence in research complying with international standards, we stress the
applicability of our work and aim for a continuous exchange with business experts, policy makers,
and administrations.

With more than 80 employees we are an important contributor to economic policy debates at the regional, national and European level. We see it as our task to transfer knowledge to both experts and the broader public.

We are looking forward to get in touch with you!


Prof. Dr. Justus Haucap and the team


We always look for participants for economic experiments!
