CRESE, EA3190, Research Center on economic strategies
The CRESE is a French research laboratory supported by the University of Franche-Comté.
The lab covers a wide range of activities, relating to both fundamental research and applied research in economics. It owns an Experimental Economics Lab and belongs to the ZAAJ (Zone Atelier de l'Arc Jurassien) for a local implementation.
The scientific activity is divided into seven research areas :
Money, Bank and Finance (Leader: Catherine Refait-Alexandre): it studies the impact of Monetary policies on financial markets (corporate, energy, microfinance) and global economy like financial stability.
Contracts, markets and regulations (Leader: François Marechal): this theme studies environmental and health system regulation, auction mechanisms, contract theory and market performance.
Games, decisions and evaluations: this theme studies collective and individual decisions, notably discrimination and addiction, and the evaluation of public policies (the economics of law, the European economy and environmental responsibility).
Every thursday, the lab organizes a research seminar and once a quarter a public conference jointly with the economics and management faculty.
