The Development Economics Network Berlin (DENeB) was initiated in summer 2013 by young PhD scholars from different institutes in the Berlin area. DENeB seeks to provide a forum for development economists in the Berlin area to meet regularly, exchange ideas and discuss ongoing work as well as current research developments.

The network consists of researchers from various institutes such as German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin), European School of Management and Technology (ESMT), Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt Universität Berlin, Leibniz Institute for Economic Research (RWI Berlin Office), and Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin für Sozialforschung (WZB). DENeB continues to be organized and coordinated by young scholars from the participating institutions.
