ZEW Strengthens Research Cooperation with Fudan University in Shanghai

The cooperation with Fudan University in Shanghai began nearly five years ago with the first wave of the joint 'China Economic Panel (CEP)' survey. This monthly survey reflects assessments of international experts on China regarding the economic development, monetary conditions, and growth in regional economic centres like Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong or Guangzhou, as well as the development of capital markets. The survey results are then used for macroeconomic projections and reliable assessments of China's economic development.

In addition to continuing the CEP survey, the two institutions will also set a focus on joint research projects in the coming five years of cooperation. Plans include, for instance, studies on FinTechs and their regulation in China, as well as projects investigating the development of 'green' investment markets and their contribution towards a more sustainable economic future.

Another aim of this collaboration is to encourage exchange between ZEW economists in Mannheim and researchers from Fudan University in Shanghai, especially through scientific conferences and extended research stays.
