  • About the Cluster

    The cluster is an intersection of economic theory, financial economics, and econometric and mathematical modelling. Therefore, the cluster’s mission is to advance and disseminate high-quality research in Applied Macroeconomics and Microeconomics as well as in Finance.

    The Applied Economics, Finance and Development cluster combines macroeconomic and microeconomic approaches to improve the understanding of a range of economic issues such as international trade, economic growth, economic reform and development practices, agriculture and food policies, irrigation, poverty, fair trade, consumer behaviour and investor behaviour within financial markets and institutions. All these issues are being explored from the perspective of economic and financial theory, using both the theoretical and empirical tools provided by behavioural economics, labour economics, environmental economics and international trade.

    The Applied Economics, Finance and Development cluster aims to explore policy implications and mitigating strategies of key issues such as climate change and carbon emissions, inequalities and poverty reduction, strategies for economic growth, agriculture and food security.
