About the Data Centre

External researchers may apply for access to ZEW research data, which they can use for research purposes on-site at ZEW. Moreover, ZEW-FDZ provides external researchers with de facto anonymized ZEW research data in the form of scientific use files. Selected data sets from the Mannheim Innovation Panel are also available as education-use-files for teaching purposes.
