Chinese cooperation partners, with whom ZEW and other international partners jointly organise the annual Beijing Humboldt Forum (BHF), have sent 1,200 face masks to ZEW Mannheim as supporting measures against the coronavirus. Since this is a private initiative of Chinese researchers, who as private individuals are only allowed to send small quantities of masks, several parcels arrived at ZEW.

Chinese partners provide ZEW with 1,200 face masks during the corona pandemic.
Chinese cooperation partners sent face masks to the ZEW to support against COVID-19.

The masks are available at the ZEW reception and will be handed out to employees and visitors on demand. In a letter to the initiators of the mask donation, BHF President Professor Zhao Zhongxiu, who is also a ZEW Research Associate, and BHF Secretary General Professor Feng Xiaohu, the ZEW management expressed its thanks for sending the masks. This is a sign of the good and sustainable cooperation, which we want to continue in the future, explained ZEW Managing Director Thomas Kohl, who is a visiting professor at the University of International Business and Economics (UIBE) in Beijing and founding member of the BHF.
