Report Due to the support of the Research School Plus, I was able to work on a joint international research project with experienced researchers at the Université Paris XIII and the New School for Social Research (New York). We are developing an agent-based model on the capacity utilization of firms We made enormous progress on the research paper since we could work on a daily base in Paris and New York. The computer simulations of our model show that it is able to capture the main stylized facts of the capacity utilization of US-American firms. Apart from my work on the mentioned project, I presented and discussed my research projects and, thus, come into contact with other researchers.
