During the last quarter century, Toulouse economists have developed a model that brings academic research at the highest level to focus on real-world problems, through interactive dialogue with industrial partners and national policymakers. This model serves both the researchers and the partners well: the partners because it provides independent validation of the research which is conducted thanks to their support; the researchers because having access to real world problems provides a new dimension to their academic research.
The center offers various opportunities for partners to discuss latest research and its impact on the important societal questions. Furthermore, the partners enjoy access to various scientific and policy events organized by the center in France as well as in other major cities of Europe.
