Data use for scientific research

The data collected by the IfM Bonn can be used free of charge by scientists for their own research activities in the institute's rooms. Use for commercial or other purposes is not possible. No company addresses are available either.

An overview of our data can be found in the article Data for Mittelstand Companies in Germany at the IfM Bonn.

The Founder Panel is described in detail in the articles The IfM Bonn Founder Panel - Design and Research Potential and The Founder Panel of the IfM Bonn - Concept and Usage Possibilities.
