About eeecon

The research platform eeecon is the home of researchers working in the area of empirical and experimental economics based on theory.

The main objective of our research platform is to deepen the cooperation and collaboration between the involved research centers and members, leading to interdisciplinary research projects and co-authorships. The working paper series of eeecon (listed in REPEC) allows members to disseminate their most recent research projects to the broad academic community. Eeecon workshops and lectures promote the exchange of information and benefit from the participation of highly reputed international speakers, signaling the extraordinary quality standard of the network and research work.

Research objectives of eeecon are the research objectives of its research members. Therefore, topics include (1) problems in macroeconomics, globalization and the evaluation of politico-economic tasks, (2) methodical fundamental research in the area of spatio-temporal models in Econometrics and Statistics, especially in Computational Statistics, (3) the significance of environment and soft factors, like social capital or cultural norms, for quality of life, economic development and innovative capacity of (ecologically sensitive) regions, (4) individual and strategic decision-making processes using a combination of theoretical and experimental methods, and (5) the analysis of the contribution of better developed markets and the innovation of complex financial instruments to a sustainable improvement of our economies and societies.

The application of up-to-date methodical knowledge and theoretical findings to analyze current economically and socially relevant problems enables eeecon members to publish in highly ranked journals. Therefore, the University of Innsbruck is recognized internationally as a successful research location in the area of empirical and experimental economics.
