Department of Economics

The Department of Economics (ECON) was founded in 1970. Since its inception, the faculty and programs of ECON have grown substantially in number and stature. As of 2020, ECON has around 60 academic staff (faculty members and PhD fellows). The department conducts cutting-edge research, teaching, and knowledge exchange in the core areas of economics, i.e. microeconomics, macroeconomics, and quantitative methods. The department is especially active in business-related economic research and hosts three research centres: Pension Research Centre (PeRCent), Centre for Innovation and Copenhagen School of Energy Infrastructure. We offer high quality education within an extensive number of full-time and part-time programs, including a structured PhD program.”

ECON organizes a number of research seminars. Please find information about the seminars here.

Pension Research Centre (PeRCent)

The mission of the Pension Research Centre (PeRCent) is to create interest and knowledge about pension issues and through research, teaching and dissemination to contribute to the development of the pension system in Denmark.

Centre for Innovation

Centre for Innovation (CFI) focuses largely on empirical economic research on innovation, performance and productivity. The research results are aimed at improving the basis for decision makers while being of such a standard that they can be published in internationally recognized journals.

Copenhagen School of Energy Infrastructure

Copenhagen School of Energy Infrastructure (CSEI) conducts research in tomorrow’s energy infrastructure from an economic policy point-of-view to ensure a successful transition towards a new sustainable European Energy Infrastructure based on volatile and largely renewable energy sources.
