WERI

Warwick Economics Research Institute

The aims of ERI are to promote directly and indirectly research in economics and interdisciplinary research that has an economic aspect.

It is to facilitate the funding and organisation of collaborative research projects involving the participation of members of the Department of Economics; and to support scholarly activities such as conferences and research networks that extend beyond the routine scholarly life of the Department of Economics.

The ERI is an integral part of the Department of Economics. Its members include the academic and research staff and research students of the Department of Economics; visitors attached to the Department of Economics; and scholars from other institutions who are associated with programmes of research administered within the Institute.
