Research Centres, Groups and Networks

Research Centres


Established in 2010 and funded by the ESRC, CAGE conducts policy-driven economics research informed by culture, history and behaviour. CAGE researchers analyse historical and contemporary data to draw out lessons for modern policy.


The Centre for Research in Economic Theory and its Applications (CRETA) coordinates collaborative research in economic theory and its applications, and in multi-disciplinary projects with related disciplines such as applied mathematics, biology, philosophy and political science.


The Quantitative and Analytical Political Economy Research Centre (QAPEC) provides a framework to coordinate collaborative research in quantitative and analytical political economy across the University of Warwick and with the Centre’s UK and international networks and partners.

Research Groups

Development and History

The Development and Economic History Group combines archival data, lab-in-the-field experiments, randomised controlled trials, text analysis, survey and secondary data along with theoretical tools to study issues in development and economic history.

Econometrics and Data Science

The Econometrics and Data Science Group covers a wide number of topics within the areas of modern econometric theory and applications as well as labour economics (e.g. the economics of education, gender economics, technology and innovation).

Experimental and Behavioural Economics

The Experimental and Behavioural Economics Group includes economists in the Department who work in experimental economics, behavioural economics and/or subjective wellbeing.

Macroeconomics and International Economics

The Macroeconomics and International Economics Group consists of faculty and PhD students. Its work centres around macroeconomics, international finance and international trade.

Microeconomic Theory

Members of the Microeconomic Theory Group work in economic theory and its applications, and in multidisciplinary projects with areas such as applied maths, biology, philosophy and political science.

Political Economy and Public Economics (PEPE)

The PEPE Group investigates topics from disciplines with natural complementarities: political economy focuses on the political feasibility of policies, while public economics studies which policies are optimal in every environment.

Applied Microeconomics

The Applied Microeconomics Group unites researchers working on topics including labour economics, economics of education, health economics, family economics, urban economics, environmental economics, and the economics of science and innovation.

Research Networks


Decision Research at Warwick (DR@W) is an interdisciplinary initiative for researchers at the University interested in experimental and behavioural science with important implications for economics, psychology, management, marketing and statistics.


The European Political Economy Consortium (EPEC) fosters high-quality research in political economy by facilitating exchange among the leading European centres in the field. It consists of five founding institutions, including Warwick.
