Network Consumer ResearchHide

The Network Consumer Research "Netzwerk Verbraucherforschung" was founded on 24th November 2011 by the German Federal Ministry for Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection (Bundesministerium für Ernährung, Landwirtschaft und Verbraucherschutz). It consists of researchers of diverse disciplines, such as sociology, economics and law, who are working together on providing an interdiciplinary consumer research.

The focus lies on the consumer and the topics of research follow their interests and needs. For instance, it is scientifically analysed, to what extent markets and offers for consumers are transparent and accessible and whether they could use more advice for specific decisions. The primar target is to empower consumers. Results of research are going to be an independent scientific basis for the consumer politics of the Federal Ministry.

As a member of the coordinating body of the Network Consumer Research Professor Schmidt-Kessel will participate in prospective activities, the identification of focus topics and the determination of the content of future expert forums and other conferences.
