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.

In particular the presentations by Oliver Lerbs, acting head of the ZEW Research Department “International Finance and Financial Management”, and Lea Steinrücke from the same department were met with great approval. The three-day conference also featured poster sessions from various ZEW researchers, allowing them to share and discuss their latest research findings with fellow scientists.

As in previous years, ZEW had its own information stand at the conference, which served as a contact point for researchers of all career levels who wanted to find out about ZEW, its research areas and potential cooperation opportunities. This year, the conference participants showed particular interest in issues related to financial and labour markets as well as current European issues.

The ASSA conference is organised on an annual basis by the American Economic Association (AEA). The event provided an opportunity for both renowned professors, including several Nobel laureates, and young researchers to present their research findings. For up-and-coming researchers, the conference can be an important stepping stone for their future academic careers in prestigious universities. In 2019, the ASSA Annual Meeting is scheduled to take place in Atlanta.
