“Developments in Data and Methods for Economic Research”
Brussels, Université Libre de Bruxelles, July 2-3, 2015
Background on COEURE
The COEURE Coordination Action (which stands for COoperation for EUropean Research in Economics, www.coeure.eu) brings together the key stakeholders in the European economic research space –policy-makers, researchers, data providers, funders – in a process of stocktaking, consultation and stakeholder collaboration. The aim of this process is to identify the knowledge gaps on key EU economic policy issues and assess the current challenges and opportunities facing European-based researchers, with the ultimate goal to inform the European agenda for research funding. It is funded by the European Commission and carried out under the initiative of the European Economic Association.
Objectives of the workshop
The “data and methods” workshop is one of 12 thematic workshops that are being organized to assess the state of the art. Its objective is to explore developments and prospects (1) in the production, funding, access and use of data for economic research and policy, and (2) in the methods of inquiry used in economic research. The workshop will bring together a small group of high level scientists, representatives of statistical offices and other producers of data, research funders as well as policy-makers to discuss these issues, identify good practices and derive recommendations for European research and research infrastructure funding.
