The main objective of the MannheimTaxation (MaTax) ScienceCampus is to foster high-quality research in the broad field of taxation. MaTax brings together researchers from economics, law, business administration and political science. It also serves as a platform for the scientific community and policy-makers to discuss and disseminate research results on taxation. It is a joint initiative of ZEW and the University of Mannheim.
The key research question of MaTax is how tax policy should be designed against the background of international integration and other current economic as well as social challenges.
Applying research methods from economics, law, business, and political science, MaTax researchers explore how tax policy should be designed to overcome these challenges at the domestic, European, and global level.
