The aim of the annual SEEK Conferences is to foster the dialogue between research and practitioners. International speakers and guests from the areas of politics, business, administration and academia meet at the SEEK conferences, which are devoted to the topic "Overcoming the Crisis in Europe".

An economic policy panel on the first day of conference analyses the central topic from the perspectives of politics, business and research. The second day of conference is dedicated to an international scientific convention. Thanks to high-profile speakers from all disciplines and an intensive dialogue with the participants, this annual event is a highlight in ZEW's schedule.
