ARFEE’s agenda is three-folded

  • how does economic research affect economic policy and growth
  • how is economic research performed and supported by universities, research centers and funding agencies
  • how does economic research interplay with other social sciences 

COEURE addresses those issues by replying to the following questions

  • are the resources devoted to economic research adeaquately allocated?
  • are human resources well trained and equipment well adapted?
  • what is the functioning of the market for economic research? what are the market failures and the transaction costs?
  • what are the strengths and weaknesses of the European economic research?
