KOF Swiss Economic Institute, ETH Zurich (Host / Global Digital Partner)

KOF provides expert information in the field of economic and business cycle research. It produces a multitude of forecasts and indicators which are used to monitor the economy. Its data pool of company surveys is unique throughout Switzerland. KOF uses this data to generate various indicators (such as the KOF Economic Barometer, the KOF Employment Indicator and the KOF Business Situation Indicator), which reflect Swiss economic sentiment. It evaluates its survey findings on a quarterly basis and presents them – as well as its economic forecasts – to the public. Furthermore, it analyses the innovation activities of Swiss companies, publishes studies on the labour market and healthcare spending, and comments on the latest economic developments. KOF – together with the Munich-​based ifo Institute – is also involved in the Joint Economic Forecast for Germany, which the German government uses as a benchmark for the performance of the economic development.
