ZEW Sponsors' Association for Science and Practice (Registered Society)
The ZEW Sponsors' Association for Science and Practice (Registered Society) in Mannheim has targeted the dialogue between science and practice for mutual benefit since its foundation in 1993. Representatives from the economy, particularly from the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region and Baden-Wuerttemberg, have formed the non-profit association to support ZEW with help and advice. The ZEW Sponsors' Association promotes practice-relevant research projects and is involved at the institute's events like "Perspectives for Economic Policy" or the annual "ZEW Summer Workshop for Young Economists". Dr. Angela Merkel, Prof. Dr. Johanna Wanka, Dr. Wolfgang Schäuble, Jean-Claude Trichet, Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Hans-Jürgen Papier, Prof. Dr. Dieter Hundt, Michael Sommer, Timotheus Höttges, Prof. James J. Heckman, PhD, and others gave speeches at these ZEW events.
Moreover, the ZEW Sponsors' Association is a forum where companies and researchers from various fields can discuss vital economic and political issues. This dialogue proved to be productive for both sides. It provides companies with scientifically sound answers to diverse topics and provides science with the necessary reference to practice. The members of the ZEW Sponsors' Association for Science and Practice regularly receive the most important information about ZEW and are invited to all of the institute's major events.
The ZEW Sponsors' Association is sponsored by membership fees and donations. The members pay a yearly membership fee whose amount is left to the members' decision, considering the minimum fee of €1.000 for companies and €200 for individuals. Since the association's foundation, the number of members has increased steadily.
