The main activities of CRIEP are Research and Third Mission.
Through its activities and roles, the Center foster scientific activities of young researchers and the equality in entering the accademic positions opportunities.
CRIEP scientific activity covers different economic analysis strands – theory, empirical and experimental economy – applied to public institutions’ policies and choices (State, public agencies, etc.) and to their impact on idividual behavior (families, enterprises, etc.).
The researches of the accademics, that relate to the different working groups of university departments forming CRIEP [Dipartimento di Scienze economiche e aziendali dell’Università di Padova, Dipartimento di Economia dell’Università Ca’ Foscari di Venezia e Dipartimento di Economia dell’Università di Verona], besides including typical objectives of public economy studies, they also cover themes where methodologies of theoric, empirical and experimental analysis is applied.
CRIEP’s research materialises in pubblications on scientific reviews and intermediate documents (i.e. working papaers, discussions and debates, etc.), presentations and organization of seminars, workshops and national and international conferences.
Reasearch agreements, advisory and dissemination of scientific knowledge have been, since its founding, the second crucial function of CRIEP’s activity. Through this function, the Center pursues two objectives. The first one is the “scientific knowledge transfer” for the benefit of public and private entities (italian and international ones,enterprises, trade associations, no profit organizations, etc.) and of national and local community. The second aim of CRIEP’s third mission is the financing of its own research activity, allocating a share of its revenues coming from the agreements to this purpose.
Wth regard to research agreements and scientific advisory, the contractors identify, in cooperation with CRIEP’s researchers, research questions and analysis methodologies aimed to satisfy specific need-to-know concerning economic and financial public policies. CRIEP has gained a long experience i transfering the most innovative scientific methodologies to find proper solutions to commissioning’s need.
During last years, CRIEP has been developing a significant scientific dissemination in favour of local public and private entities and institutions.
