The Grenoble Centre for Economic Research (CREG), Université Grenoble Alpes research unit was created in January 2011. It is located within the Grenoble Economics department (FEG) and brings together 57 people including 27 researchers and 21 PhD students. To see the profile of all CREG members please click here.
CREG’s research program is related to the study of globalization and governance issues from a political economy perspective and through two specific themes:
- "Organisations and Social Innovations" that brings together work around the forms of private, cooperative or public enterprises and studies how the way institutions function determines the modes of (social) regulation in continuous evolution.
- "Development, Emergence and Finance" brings together work around the processes of emergence in relation with monetary and financial issues as well as with sustainability of market-based economies.
These themes are both related to international economic integration and governance issues.
Development – Emergence and governance - Evaluation – Financial systems - International integration - Organisations and institutions - Political economy - Public action – Regulation - Sustainability
The lab’s structure
The Creg research unit provides an environment to develop holistic and pluralistic approaches to economics. In particular it privileges a Political Economy approach through both theoretical and applied analyses.
The scientific activities of CREG are very much international with research programs and publications relating to the modalities, processes, experiences and outcomes of international economic integration and governance.
The CREG management team is assisted by the laboratory council made up of 13 members including researchers, administrative staff and Phd students.
On the Grenoble Campus CREG works with other economics and social sciences laboratories like GAEL et PACTE. Alongside these 2 laboratories CREG also belongs to the University pole for social sciences that gathers the research departments in economics, management, law, sociology, architecture, geography and political science.
The CREG is partner in many national and international research projects as well as being involved in international networks for economic expertise, especially in the area of international and development economics.
