Proyecto Consolider-Ingenio 2010

The general aims of the "Consolidating Economics" project are to:

- Foster research in the different areas of Economics, both theoretical and applied, where a position of international prestige has already been attained.

- Increase the bibliometric impact of the research team during the next half-decade by about 25% over what has been achieved during 2001-05.

- Create or strengthen interdisciplinary links that will also lead to research projects and publications.

- Develop a new Spanish institution, the Barcelona Graduate School of Economics (Barcelona GSE) to support and foster graduate teaching in close collaboration with the ongoing Ph.D. programs

- Promote Economics research in Spain by supporting the Symposium of Economic Analysis and the associated Job Market for Ph.Ds in Economics and by awarding prizes for the best publications produced at Spanish institutions.

- Increase activities aimed at increasing international cooperation and projection, particularly with Europe and Latin America.

El grupo de Investigación Económica de Excelencia en Madrid (EXCELECON) pretende colocar la investigación económica en la Comunidad de Madrid a la vanguardia de la investigación española y europea en Economía. Las entidades participantes se vertebran alrededor de un núcleo formado por el Departamento de Economía de la Universidad Carlos III de Madrid y el Centro de Estudios Monetarios y Financieros, cuyo prestigio en el ámbito internacional de la investigación en Economía están avalados por los rankings internacionales de excelencia investigadora más reconocidos, que los sitúan entre los 60 mejores centros en el mundo, los 20 mejores en Europa y 5 mejores en España. Junto a este núcleo básico se cuenta con la participación de dos grupos de investigación de reconocido prestigio, la Fundación de Estudios de Economía Aplicada, y el Grupo PITEC (Panel de Innovación Tecnológica) del Departamento de Economía Aplicada de la Universidad Complutense de Madrid.

EFIGE: European Firms in a Global Economy: Internal Policies for External Competitiveness

EFIGE is a four-year Collaborative Research Project funded by the 7th Framework Programme (Collaborative Programme) of the European Commission. It involves Bruegel, Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, CEPII, CEPR, the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Institute for Applied Economic Research, and Unicredit Group. The project will look at the international competitiveness of European firms on the basis of comparative firm level surveys that will be carried out in parallel in seven EC countries.

SCience, Innovation, FIrms and markets in a GLObalized World

The SCIFI-GLOW collaborative project examines simultaneously the organization of the ‘knowledge sector’ and the behaviour of firms and markets. The project aims to do this by bringing together two ‘communities’ of economic researchers: those interested primarily in the research sector and those who look at the effect of globalization in terms of trade flows, the organization of firms and product and labour market outcomes. SCIFI-GLOW will connect research teams with expertise in the following areas:

  • economics of science and innovation;
  • economics of incentives and contracts;
  • industrial organization;
  • international trade labour economics

The project will combine theoretical and empirical research, and build upon the growing availability of databases, both at the cross-country and at the national level to highlight interesting case studies.
