    Virtual panel discussion with Prof. Dr. Martin Weber, Dr. Sabine Mauderer, Dr. Gerhard Schick, Dr. Karolin Kirschenmann and Prof. Achim Wambach, PhD.

    Is the lack of comprehensible sustainability criteria an obstacle to growth in the sustainable finance sector? In which way do policy measures aimed at a sustainable financial market interact with climate policy instruments? Can investors advance sustainable financial investments effectively by exercising their voting rights? Joined by around 80 online participants, four finance experts from academia and business debated the question of whether sustainable finance can ensure climate protection  and addressed the most relevant current developments and topics in the field of sustainable finance. On 22 September 2021, the 90-minute panel discussion was organised by the Sustainable ZEW initiative.

    The digital format of the recent #ZEWlive on Regional Politics.

    Jobs, fast internet, good public transport connections – many things are unequally distributed across regions in Germany and Europe.

    The COVID-19 pandemic requires joint action from the EU Member States – for both health protection and to respond to the crisis with appropriate economic policy measures. The “Next Generation EU” recovery fund and the “Pandemic Emergency Purchase Programme” (PEPP) of the ECB are at the heart of the joint efforts to stabilise the European economy. At the #ZEWlive event on 10 November 2020, Dr. Sylvie Goulard, deputy governor of the Banque de France, and ZEW expert Professor Friedrich Heinemann discussed whether these programmes can help overcome the crisis. The discussion revealed that while these support programmes are effective in the short term, they are not sufficiently well-targeted to address the long-term causes of weak growth and the lack of resilience. The event was supported by the Brigitte Strube Stiftung.

    Fuest is deprecatory to the state's current tendency to intervene more in the economy.

    The coronavirus pandemic has put the economy, society and policymakers under considerable pressure. Against this background, ifo President Professor Clemens Fuest presented his recently published book “Wie wir unsere Wirtschaft retten. Der Weg aus der Corona-Krise” (“How to Save the Economy. The Way Out of the Coronavirus Crisis”) in an online event on 26 October 2020 at ZEW Mannheim – marking the kick-off of the new #ZEWBookTalk series. In the subsequent discussion with ZEW President Professor Achim Wambach, Fuest expressed his criticism of the German government’s current tendency towards interventionist economic policy measures. The difficulties in overcoming the coronavirus-induced recession lie in the fact that the measures adopted are not well-targeted and that there is not enough economic data on the regional impact of the crisis, he argued.

     Guests and podium at the European Evening on growth opportunities and climate policy.

    The European Green Deal is an ambitious climate action plan by the European Union. Its implementation leaves a number of questions unanswered. During the European Evening at ZEW Mannheim, Baden-Württemberg’s Minister of Science, Theresia Bauer, former EU Commissioner, Günther H. Oettinger, as well as the director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, Ottmar Edenhofer, and president of ZEW, Achim Wambach, discussed what exactly is needed in order for Europe to become carbon neutral by 2050. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, an exclusive group of participants comprising 30 guests was permitted to attend the event in person. Individuals who were interested in the event, but were not able to physically attend, were still able to follow the opening ceremony of the closure of the SEEK research programme via a live stream from their screens at home. Journalist Johannes Pennekamp moderated the panel discussion at the event.

     The workshop dealt with the topic of migration in Europe.

    Five years ago, Angela Merkel coined the now famous phrase “Wir schaffen das” (“We can do it”) in the midst of a crisis situation, as more and more migrants made their journey to Europe on the Balkan route. But what can the countries that take in immigrants do to integrate them? What consequences can be expected from accepting and integrating immigrants with regard to the attitudes towards migration issues in these countries? These and other questions were discussed at the international workshop “Immigration, Integration and Attitudes” that took place on 22 and 23 September 2020 at ZEW Mannheim.
