Marc Frick joined ZEW in October 2019 as academic assistant to the head of the Research Department “Environmental and Resource Economics, Environmental Management”. He studied philosophy at Heidelberg University, majoring in the history of economic thought and political philosophy. In his master’s thesis, he dealt with different forms of exchange, in particular the comparison of market and gift exchanges. Since 2017, he has continued his research on this topic as part of his doctorate at the Chair of Modern Political Theory at Heidelberg University, examining the role of generosity, altruism, and solidarity in the cohesion of societies. From 2015 to 2019, he worked together with a team led by Professor Malte Faber on the project “MINE – Mapping the Interplay Between Nature and Economy”. The aim of the project was to develop an approach for the digital communication of scientific findings on environmental and economic topics.
