    As digitalisation has reached the health sector, medical innovations will be driven more and more by the use of data. Analysing and connecting patient data is playing an increasingly important role in the early detection of epidemics and for developing patient-specific treatment plans. The use of patient data presents opportunities as well as challenges for patients, the public health sector and Germany as a business hub. This raises the question of why Germany is not up to speed on the use of health data. How can the full potential of health data be used and competitiveness be increased? ZEW President Professor Achim Wambach, Baden-Württemberg Minister of Science Theresia Bauer, and health expert and chairman of the board of AOK Baden-Württemberg Johannes Bauernfeind discussed these questions in a panel debate at BW Bank Stuttgart on 1 June 2022. ZEW Mannheim organised the panel discussion together with the Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts Baden-Württemberg. Anne Guhlich and Joachim Dorfs, editors-in-chief of the Stuttgarter Zeitung, moderated the event.

     EFI Annual Report 2022 on digitalization.

    It is undisputed that Germany has some catching up to do in terms of digitalisation. Particularly in digital key technologies and the digital transformation of the health care system, the Federal Republic cannot keep up with other countries, criticise the members of the Expert Commission on Research and Innovation (EFI) in their Annual Report 2022. On 28 April 2022, Professor Irene Bertschek, head of the ZEW Research Department “Digital Economy” and member of the EFI Expert Commission, and Dr. Anna Christmann, Commissioner for the Digital Industry and Start-ups of the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Action, discussed the measures that the government coalition parties envisage with regard to digitalisation as part of the ZEW event series "First-Hand Information on Economic Policy”.

    The digital economy poses enormous challenges for policymakers in terms of innovation, competition and regulation.

These and many other questions were discussed by around 190 participants from science, politics and business at this year’s annual conference of the Mannheim Centre for Competition and Innovation (MaCCI) at ZEW Mannheim.

    The world is in a crisis continuum and Germany is watching. This is the impression Moritz Schularick, professor of economics at the University of Bonn, gets when he looks at the state’s actions in recent years. He has written down his observations. In his latest book, “Der entzauberte Staat – Was Deutschland aus der Pandemie lernen muss” (“The Disenchanted State – What Germany Must Learn from the Pandemic”), he argues that Germany should move away from the typical ‘can’t-do’ mentality and adopt a stronger ‘can-do’ attitude. This can also be applied to Germany’s current action in the Ukraine war. At the #ZEWBookTalk on 22 March 2022, ZEW President Professor Achim Wambach and Moritz Schularick discussed not only the achievements and failures of the state in crisis mode. They also revisited their debate on the pros and cons of an energy embargo against Russia, published the same day in the German business newspaper ‘Handelsblatt’.
