ZEW Annual Report 2020


In 2020, the coronavirus had the world fully in its grip, and governments and politicians had to act. The topics that have dominated the discussion include school closures, competition to accelerate vaccine production, COVID-19 denier demonstrations, and government aid for companies and states. Throughout, ZEW Mannheim has endeavoured to shape the public debate for the better. Detailed descriptions of our results and policy recommendations can be found in our focus report on the coronavirus crisis included in this year’s ZEW Annual Report.
