As an academic, Korte was awarded several prizes for both excellence in teaching (f.e. the Teaching Award by the faculty of law of the Freie Universität Berlin, 2009) and research (f.e. the Interdisciplinary Jean Monnet Award for habilitation by the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena, 2015).

On the one hand, Korte’s research is focused on European economic law, especially on the European Single Market with its four freedoms as well as the state aid law. On the other, he takes part in the legal discussion on national administrative economic law, where he is a leading expert on the topics of the German gambling law and the Trade, Commerce and Industry Regulation Act.
