About IAE

The Institute for Economic Analysis (IAE) is a research centre of the Spanish Council for Scientific Research (CSIC). We are located on the campus of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB). The Institute was founded in 1985 and its mission is to promote research in economics. Our highly productive team of researchers is committed to scientific excellence in research and graduate education.

Our work is both theoretical and empirical, and covers a wide variety of fields including econometrics, experimental economics, game theory, industrial organization and regulation, growth and development, macroeconomics, monetary economics, political economics and public economics. Recent rankings recognize the IAE as a leading European institution for research in Economics. The numerous studies undertaken by the Institutes researchers produce a steady output of top publications in international scientific journals.

Our post-doctoral program - which has a long tradition and is presently under an ambitious expansion - is a privileged launching pad for brilliant careers in economics research. We also teach and supervise doctoral students (IDEA) at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.

We are also a founding partner of the Barcelona-GSE, an exciting new initiative that offers world-class graduate programs.
