    Director of Business and Administration | ZEW

    Ernst-O. Schulze, Director of Business and Administration at the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW), Mannheim, celebrates his 60th birthday on Friday, 23 July 1999. As founding director of ZEW, he considerably contributed to the setting up and expansion of the institute to the extent that it has become one of Germany’s leading economic research institutes. Together with the former ZEW Scientific Director, Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Heinz König and the current President of ZEW, Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Wolfgang Franz, he helped to convert ZEW into an economic research institute which the German Council of Science and Humanities recommended to include on the list of institutes ("Blaue Liste") jointly funded by the Federal Government and the Länder a few days ago. This kind of recognition of ZEW's excellent scientific reputation was probably the most pleasant birthday present for him to receive and a nice acknowledgement of his high level of personal commitment to ZEW throughout the past nine years as Director of Business and Administration.

    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.

    With effect from June 3, 1998, Dr. Jürgen Strube, chairman of the Board of Executive Directors, BASF SE, is appointed as one of the nine members of the ZEW Supervisory Board (Centre for European Economic Research, Mannheim). Senator Hermann Freudenberg, who has supported the successful establishment of ZEW by word and deed since 1991, retired from the Supervisory Board. Senator Freudenberg had already been member of the ZEW founding commission, where he contributed practical advice to the discussion about the tasks of ZEW concerning the demands that industry places on a new economic research institute. After the institute’s foundation, the entrepreneur, who had been chairman of the Freudenberg & Co. Board of Partners from 1988 to mid-1997, has held the position of deputy chairman of the ZEW Supervisory Board for almost seven years and as such has been an esteemed contact person in the Executive Board.

    On Wednesday (10-06-1998), the German Foundation for International Development (DSE) and the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) said goodbye to a group of 16 Chinese human resources managers. The Chinese delegation received further training on human resource development in the form of a ten months programme designed and carried out by DSE and ZEW. The Chinese employers of these junior managers, chiefly state educational institutions, are not the only beneficiaries of this qualification. International companies which are increasingly investing in China likewise have a high demand for highly-qualified staff, especially in the field of human resource management.
