German Business Panel’s first survey is live

How are firms affected by the corona crisis, is the governments’ support effective and what do firms expect for the future? Does uncertainty change plans for investments & employment? The German Business Panel, a project within our TRR 266, issued a survey on the state of German firms in the corona crisis and the effectiveness of interventions by the EU and the German government. We are pleased to report that several thousand firms, from a wide range of sectors and geographically spread out across Germany, have already taken part.

The survey is still open, more information can be found here.

The first results will be published soon.
