WPZ WPZ – FGN’s Economic Policy Center The Institute of Economics FGN-HSG has created a new Economic Policy Center (WPZ - Wirtschaftspolitisches Zentrum) to report about policy relevant activities of the institute's members and collaborators. The key mission of the center is to promote the knowledge transfer from academic research and teaching into policy making. The center collects policy studies, essays, commentaries, media contributions and other publicly visible activities of its members and disseminates it to a broader public audience. Academic research and teaching can be made more relevant for the democratic process if it is translated into non-technical format and is communicated in an accessible way to the media and a broader audience. The center has an affiliate in Vienna which focusses on Austrian economic policy, find more information here (website Vienna). For more Information on WPZ switch to the German version.
