Education fosters the development of cognitive and non-cognitive skills, and is a key factor in improving individual, firm and macroeconomic productivity. The aim of education research at the ZEW is to provide economic expertise for individuals and decision-makers in education policy who are engaged in finding optimal strategies for the promotion of human capital and skills.
