Institut für Weltwirtschaft

Kiel Institute for the World Economy

The Kiel Institute, founded in 1914, is an international centre for research in global economic affairs, economic policy consulting, economic education and documentation. The Institute engages widely in the empirical analysis of current economic policy issues, and in the identification and theoretical analysis of newly emerging economic phenomena. In the field of academic research, the Institute focuses on applied economic research and has ample experience with EU-funded projects. Research on trade, international outsourcing, innovation, labour markets, and structural change feature prominently in the Institute's past and ongoing work.

IFW's main contribution is to WP4, examining the relationships between FDI and outsourcing in services and productivity growth using micro data.
