Political consulting is a core mandate of DIW Berlin. In that context, we aim to reach the public and to provide a firmer empirical footing for the economic and socio-political debate. Achieving this requires that our research results are available and understandable for the public. This is the main task of the Communication service department.

The department engages in a wide range of communication activities, ranging from media and public relations, event management, and online copywriting, to managing the library. After all, good research needs access to the world’s knowledge as well as good communication among people.
