CESifo Group

The CESifo Group combines the theoretical economic research capabilities of the University of Munich's Center for Economic Studies (CES) with the Ifo Institute's expertise in empirical economic research, and places them in an international context. It runs a global economics research network, publishes successful journals as well as working paper and book series, organises a sizeable number of international conferences and is host to the European Economy Advisory Group.

As one of Europe's foremost economics research organisations, the CESifo Group makes significant contributions to policy debate, publishes internationally influential economic indices such as the Ifo Business Climate Indicator and the World Economic Survey (WES), and maintains free-access databases such as the Database for Institutional Comparisons in Europe (DICE).
