About the Berlin Centre for Consumer Policies (BCCP):
The aim of the Berlin Centre for Consumer Policies (BCCP) is to create an enduring international platform in the broad area of competition and consumer policies, where excellent interdisciplinary research can actively and effectively inform policy makers on issues that are highly relevant to
the current policy debate.
The Centre can build on the existing, strong, visible, and interdisciplinary cooperation among the two Leibniz institutes DIW Berlin and WZB, several faculties of the three universities Humboldt University Berlin, Free University Berlin, and Technical University Berlin, the European School of Management and Technology (ESMT), and the Hertie School of Governance.
The strong focus of the partner institutions in industrial organisation, behavioural economics and competition law, as well as a strong policy focus makes Berlin the perfect location for a ScienceCampus focused on consumer policies. The main goal of BCCP is to fully exploit, reinforce, and institutionalise this exceptional environment to answer specific questions on the optimal design of consumer policies.
