COEURE is based on a process of stocktaking, consultation and stakeholder collaboration that aims to the formulation of an “Agenda for Research Funding for Economics in Europe” (ARFEE).
This agenda will provide a roadmap for enhancing economic research in Europe and its funding.
The COEURE process is based on three work packages (WP)
- WP1: Advances in Economic Research: Foundations for European Policies. It evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of economic research with respect to key economic issues.
- WP2: Evaluating Mechanisms for Funding Economic Research in Europe. It assesses the efficiency of economic research funding sources and systems across the different European countries.
- WP3: Setting an Agenda for Research Funding for Economics in Europe. It brings together all the stakeholders and combines results from WP1 and WP2 in order to formulate such Agenda.
