11 TSE researchers are currently funded the ERC, making TSE is the top ERC grant beneficiary in its field, Europe-wide.
- ERC « Starting Grants »
support up-and-coming research leaders who are about to establish or consolidate a proper research team and to start conducting independent research in Europe. The scheme targets promising researchers who have the proven potential of becoming independent research leaders. It supports the creation of excellent new research teams and strengthens others that have been recently created.

The TSE research teams are involved in H2020 projects.
This specific programme supports all types of research activities led by research organisations through transnational cooperation. Their aim is to build and consolidate leadership in scientific and technological fields. The funding of socio-economics and social science projects contribute to more in-depth study and a wider comprehension of complex and independent socio-economic challenges that Europe is currently facing.
What are LABEX grants, and why are they important for TSE?
In 2010, as part of its €57bn. Investments for the Future program prominently dedicated to research and higher education, the French government launched an ambitious and extensive tender for applications to select the most promising research clusters and units, the laboratories of excellence (LABEX = laboratoires d’excellence). The tender resulted in the award of 171 multi-year LABEX across all disciplines, selected by an international selection jury.
TSE received two of the largest LABEX grants:
a. LABEX IAM-TSE (Incentives, Agents, Markets) was awarded in 2012 with a 15 M€ funding commitment over 8 years for TSE, the largest among the 71 grants in the second wave of LABEX grant awards.

b. LABEX IAST was awarded in 2011 with a 25 M€ funding commitment over 9 years, the third largest among the 100 grants in the first wave of LABEX grants. It enabled the creation of the interdisciplinary Institute of Advanced Study in Toulouse (IAST), a brainchild of Jean Tirole in which the economists of TSE play a prominent role. IAST and the LABEX IAST are presented on IAST’s website.
In 2017, TSE received from the French program « Ecoles universitaires de recherche » (EUR) a grant for the project Toulouse Graduate School Challenges in Economics and Quantitative Social Sciences (CHESS) and received 10,8 M€ funding commitment over 10 years.
TSE is also coordinator or partner in various projects ranging from local projects to international projects
