The team “Information and Knowledge Management” sees to the effective and needs-based supply of information to our employees here at ZEW. We procure, provide and make literature and data accessible as part of our very own specialist library at the institute. We offer training on how our employees can access scientific literature and data research. We also provide support regarding the publication of scientific papers.

In addition to these services, we tend to the maintenance of our Intranet as a key component in our internal communication. The introduction and implementation of the research information system (FIS) is currently taking place, which will modernise the maintenance of research-related data. Data on ZEW’s research output, such as projects or publications, will be gathered centrally and analysed through this system, in order to bundle existing tools for data collection with a certain perspective.
