About us

We develop tailor-made project solutions for our clients based on the latest economic findings and well-founded empirical analyses. Statistical information, databases and the results of our own 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 contractors such as ministries and educational institutions. We complement our scientific expertise through close cooperation with our parent institute, DIW Berlin.

To provide our clients with first-class results, we work in tailor-made project teams with top researchers and experienced consultants. DIW Econ thus forms an interface where the sector-specific knowledge of our consultants and sound knowledge of economic theory and empirical methodology come together.
