The Hamburg Institute of International Economics (HWWI) is an independent economic research institute that carries out basic and applied research, while providing impetus for business, politics and society.

HWWI’s roots go back to 1908 when the Institute was founded by Hamburg merchants who wanted to understand the global economy, its state and perspectives. In this regard, the HWWI is the oldest economic research institute in Germany.

The Hamburg Chamber of Commerce is the sole shareholder of the HWWI. The Helmut Schmidt University is an associated scientific partner of the Institute.
