Research Cooperation

DIW Berlin works with a series of research directors and DIW Fellows. They collaborate for a specified period of time, fulfill cross-section tasks, and give important research impulses.

Research Directors

There are currently eight research directors at DIW Berlin whose work is primarily interdisciplinary. In close cooperation with one of the research departments, they each develop a basis for empirical economic and social policy advice. In close cooperation with the research departments they identify new areas of focus and methodologies. They also contribute to the continuing professional development and supervision of researchers.


DIW Fellows

DIW Fellows are external researchers who work closely with one or more research departments of DIW Berlin on research questions, political consulting, or continuing education.
