About Economics research areas at University of Nottingham

The Nottingham School of Economics enjoys an international reputation for research and scholarship of the highest quality. The School promotes an active research environment which fosters collaborative research links, both within and external to the University. The School supports a number of research groups covering the full range of economic theory and applied economics and econometrics.

Six major Research Centres are hosted within the School:

The Centre for Research in Economic Development and International Trade (CREDIT) concentrates on research into economic policies in developing countries, especially as these relate to international trade, poverty, foreign aid, agriculture and commodity markets.

The Centre for Globalisation and Economic Policy (GEP) research is focused on economic analysis of links between changes in patterns of international trade, cross-border investment and production, international regulation and labour market outcomes.

The Centre for Decision Research and Experimental Economics (CeDEX) undertakes research into individual and strategic decision-making using a combination of theoretical and experimental methods. On the theory side, members of the Centre investigate individual choice under uncertainty, co-operative and non-co-operative game theory, as well as theories of psychology, bounded rationality and evolutionary game theory. The Centre has its own dedicated experimental laboratory, and its members have applied experimental methods in the fields of public economics, individual choice under risk and uncertainty, strategic interaction, and the performance of auctions, markets and other economic institutions.

The Granger Centre for Time Series Econometrics was established in December 2006 in the University of Nottingham's School of Economics to provide a research forum for the development and dissemination of new research initiatives in both theoretical and applied time series econometric analysis, including panel data methods. The Centre is named in honour of Professor Sir Clive Granger in recognition of both his invaluable contributions to the discipline of time series econometrics and his long association with the University of Nottingham.

The Centre for Policy Evaluation (CPE) was established in 2005 in the University of Nottingham's School of Economics to provide a forum for the development of new research initiatives that contribute to our understanding of the economic effects of public policy. The Centre is structured in a manner which allows both for the development of evaluation and simulation tools, and the application of those tools to a wide range of questions of public policy concern.

The Centre for Finance and Credit Markets (CFCM, formerly the Experian Centre for Economic Modelling), was founded in 2000 in the School of Economics at the University of Nottingham. The research centre focuses on a number of specific issues arising from household and corporate debt; default on debt, and on the wider issue of the operation of credit markets. Projects on household debt, default and arrears utilise published household microdata from the U.K. and U.S. There are a range of projects on the operation of credit markets that examine transmission mechanisms in the monetary sector, and measures of corporate and household credit constraints arising from monetary policy. The Centre has also, since its inception, had an interest in econometric forecasting.

The School has strong research groups in microeconomic theory, working on game theory, public economic theory and social choice; in macroeconomics with interests including monetary and growth economics; and in labour economics with work on wage differentials, labour market adjustment and labour supply incentives.

The Health Economics Research Group links to the School of Public Health in the Medical School. Recent publications and current research interests include evaluating health status and access to healthcare.
