ZEW Visiting Researchers Programme

We would be delighted to welcome you at ZEW. The institute offers outstanding opportunities to conduct research in an inspiring environment. Established economists as well as up-and-coming researchers benefit from research stays at ZEW organised as part of our Visiting Researchers Programme.

As a visiting researcher you will collaborate closely with colleagues from ZEW. You will be integrated into our research work and daily academic life, while having the chance to attend workshops, conferences, and other events. Being able to take advantage of the infrastructure at ZEW to conduct your own research is another benefit of becoming a ZEW visiting researcher.

Facilitating scientific exchange between you and ZEW researchers is very important to us. We therefore invite you to present your work in our seminars and to contribute to joint publications. Many research visits at ZEW have resulted in long-term scientific cooperation.

How to apply?

The application process is informal. You can apply by sending a cover letter indicating the ZEW research unit in which you would like to complete your stay; your preferred time-frame; your full CV; a publication record; a letter of motivation which includes an abstract of the work you wish to undertake at ZEW (topic, description and time schedule); and the contact details of two references. There are no deadlines. Applications should be submitted electronically to the head of the ZEW research unit you are interested in.
