ZEW’s attendance at the Annual Meeting of the Allied Social Science Associations (ASSA) proved a great success. The world's most important conference in economics offered plenty of opportunities for ZEW researchers to engage in scientific discussions and to present their research findings, while also providing new impulses for future research projects.
