On December 17, 2015, a team consisting of FiRe researchers Roland Mestel, Stefan Palan and Erik Theissen travelled to Vienna to explore the possibility for cooperation between the research platform and the Vienna Stock Exchange. In a meeting with the stock exchange's entire board, a divisional director and four department heads, Mestel, Palan and Theissen laid out the expertise available at the research platform and presented several planned research projects. The exchange's representatives expressed their interest in the topics covered and committed to a data sharing agreement which will provide the group in Graz with intraday data for its own research and will also allow FiRe to prepare and offer an aggregated dataset to research institutions free of charge.
