On behalf of the German Institute for Tourism Research (DITF) at the FH Westküste – Univerity of Applied Sciences, DIW Econ, in cooperation with the German Economic Institute for Tourism at the University of Munich (dwif), has calculated the ” Economic Impact of Tourism” for Schleswig-Holstein (with reference year 2019) based on a Tourism Satellite Account (TSA) for the third time after 2015 and 2017.
The current study by DIW Econ, in cooperation with Prof. Dr. Claudia Kemfert, DIW Berlin, commissioned by the Bavarian SPD state parliamentary group, examines how the Free State of Bavaria can achieve a just transition into a emission neutral future. For this purpose, the study discusses specific social-ecological measures for the upcoming political reorientation in the sectors of energy, transport, buildings and industry.
DIW Econ conducted the feasibility study “Mobility as a Public Service (MaaPS)” from July 2020 to April 2021. The study aims to gauge the potential of micro-mobility data for public administration and develop concrete technical solutions for the efficient use of the data by local authorities. The “MaaPS” project is being funded by the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure with around 100,000 euros as part of the mFUND innovation initiative.
The project evaluated data from a micro-mobility provider on the use of electric pedal scooters in Berlin and Munich. Accompanying the evaluation of the data and the development of administrative recommendations for action, a dialogue took place with the Berlin and Munich authorities. The technical and administrative requirements for the implementation of a suitable process for data exchange between micro-mobility providers and municipalities were examined.
The feasibility study will be published in the summer of 2021. More information about the project can be found here:

The study “Maritime value-added and employment in Germany” makes it possible for the first time to make a scientifically substantiated assessment of the overall economic significance of the industry for Germany. The results can serve as a trend-setting basis for discussion for political decisions at all federal and regional levels.
The study was conducted on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) by a consortium consisting of ISL (Institute of Shipping Economics and Logistics), Fraunhofer CML, ETR (Economic Trends Research) and DIW Econ.
