ZEW President Wolfgang Franz: "More Investment in Early Childhood Education"

Non-cognitive skills such as persistence when solving a problem, discipline, concentration or the capacity for motivation are relevant to success or failure at school, the vocational training or the job. The first years of life are crucial for conveying these skills. "In German society, there are numerous children who do not have the chance to fully develop their non-cognitive skills due to unfavourable family circumstances and are thus likely to encounter problems at school and, later on, at the job market. Educational expenditure needs to be re-directed in favour of higher investment in early childhood education to counteract this shortcoming, for which, otherwise, the German economy will have to pay dearly," explained Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Wolfgang Franz, economic expert and president of the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW), in today’s opening speech at the first conference of the research network "Non-Cognitive Skills - Acquisition and Economic Consequences", which is funded by the Leibniz Association. read more

German Council of Science and Humanities Recommends ZEW to Be Included on the "Blue List"

The Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) in Mannheim was given high accreditation in the current publication of the German Science Council’s assessment report. ZEW was praised for having turned into a centre of excellence for empirical and policy-oriented economic research in Germany since its foundation in 1990. According to the report, ZEW is a competent discussion and cooperation partner for universities and non-university research institutions, as well as a highly-sought provider of economic policy advice due to its research profile and so far successful work. The German Science Council therefore recommends ZEW to be included on the Blue List. The Mannheim-based economic research institute thus officially belongs to a special list of research institutes in Germany which are funded jointly by the Federal Government and the Länder as a result of their supraregional importance and in the interest of national science policy. The issued recommendation by the German Science Council is a precondition for ZEW to be included on the Blue List and forms the basis for the decision of the Bund-Länder Commission for Educational Planning and Research Promotion (BLK) on the future joint funding of ZEW by the Federal Government and the Länder. read more
