Research Projects

Many research projects of ECON colleagues are related to Chinese economy. They are mostly applied econometrics and applied theory in nature. A large share of the studies fall into the School’s Faculty Niche Research Area (FNRA) and a growing share of studies fall into the University’s research cluster “Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence”.
