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.

"Investissements d'avenir", French government funding program
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 for Advanced Study in Toulouse (IAST), a brainchild of Jean Tirole in which the economists of TSE play a prominent role. IAST and its LABEX funding are presented on the IAST website.
In 2017, the French government launched another Investments for the Future program to support the creation of innovative and impactful research-based graduate schools: « Ecoles universitaires de recherche » (EUR). TSE's proposal was selected for the "CHESS" project: Toulouse Graduate School Challenges in Economics and Quantitative Social Sciences. The project, soon to be underway, has received a 10,8 M€ funding commitment over 10 years.
