    Cover picture and side view of the ZEW Annual Report.

    Last year, the COVID-19 pandemic has turned the world upside down. The virus presented us with unprecedented challenges in all areas of our lives and required rapid and massive government intervention. ZEW Mannheim provided scientific impetus to address these challenges, for example, by pointing out the effects of school closures, identifying ways to speed up the production of vaccines and investigating the impact of the ‘Querdenken’ protests on infection rates. The newly published German version of the ZEW Annual Report 2020 provides an interesting overview of this – an English version will be available soon.
