Call for Submissions for the first two survey waves in 2023

The ongoing war in Ukraine, high inflation and looming energy supply shortages – these are just a selection of topics that are currently moving people in Germany. Your research interests include these topics, but you lack empirical data to investigate your questions? Then the GESIS Panel now offers the opportunity to conduct a population survey in Germany at short notice and free of charge. For the first two survey waves in 2023, we have free slots for so-called short submissions, which can also be implemented as a longitudinal study.

Here you find research based services to accompany you in all phases of your research project. 

We are doing research in the areas Survey Methodology, Contemporary Societal Issues, Research Data Management and Applied Computer Science.
