About us

We develop customized project solutions for our clients based on the latest economic findings and well-founded empirical analyses. Statistical information, databases and the results of our surveys and case studies form the starting point of our work. Our clients include German and international companies, as well as international institutions and public clients such as ministries and educational institutions. Our scientific expertise is complemented by close cooperation with our parent institute, DIW Berlin.

In order to deliver first-class results to our clients, we work in customized project teams with top researchers and experienced consultants. DIW Econ thus forms an interface where the sector-specific knowledge of our consultants and in-depth knowledge of economic theory and empirical methodology come together.

Our Scientific Advisory Board consists of respected active scientists and supports us in incorporating current scientific findings into the conception and implementation of our project work. It advises us on scientific issues and evaluates the research work.
