Barcelona School of Economics (BSE) is delighted to invite you to participate in the 38th meeting of the European Economic Association and the 75th European meeting of the Econometric Society. Barcelona School of Economics (formerly Barcelona Graduate School of Economics or Barcelona GSE) is an institution for research and graduate education in Economics, Finance, Data Science, and the social sciences.
Barcelona School of Economics was founded in 2006 by economist Andreu Mas-Colell to consolidate four established Economics research groups in Barcelona: the Department of Economics and Business at Universitat Pompeu Fabra; the Unit of Economic Analysis at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona; the Center for Research in International Economics (CREI); and the Institute for Economic Analysis (IAE-CSIC).
More than 150 faculty from these four groups are BSE Affiliated Professors, who form the core of all Barcelona School of Economics research and educational activities, in addition to Research Fellows, Post-Docs and PhD students. The BSE ambition is to be consistently recognised as one of the top institutions in Europe and worldwide for research and education in Economics and the social sciences.
