The ZEW – Leibniz Centre for European Economic Research is pleased to announce the call for papers for the 2022 ZEW Public Finance Conference. The conference will take place on 5 and 6 May 2022. We plan to meet in person in Mannheim, Germany.

The annual conference aims to cover all fields of public economics. This year’s keynote lectures will focus on the role of the state in promoting innovation.
