Introduction to Research

The Section of Economic Theory of the Department of Economics is research oriented and encourages its members to publish in high quality journals. The Section has an active research life. We organize a weekly seminar, an internal Macroeconomics workshop and participate in the Faculty-wide seminar series on Microeconomics. Moreover, we have a visitors’ program oriented to enhance international collaborations.

Members of the Section carry out research in the fields of Microeconomics and Macroeconomics. Research interests range from theoretical to applied and policy-oriented subjects.

We have a distinct personality. We value excellence, thoughtful research and quality over quantity. Our atmosphere is friendly (we even have an occasional seminar series on cheese and wine tasting) and collaborative.
