The European Economics and Financial Centre is engaged in research and advisory work in the areas of economics and finance. It works closely with the financial community and has among its aims and capabilities the establishment of closer links between the practitioner (both in the private and public sector) and the theorist in the areas of economics and finance.
The EEFC has active at any given time many research projects in different areas of economics and finance. The research projects conducted at the Centre are on a cross-section of topics ranging from issues related to European integration, single currency, and behaviour of exchange rates to different aspects of financial markets, including the derivative markets as well as dealing practices and regulatory environments of financial markets.
