The School of Economics is a hub for international, interdisciplinary, high-impact research initiatives including recent £1M+ awards from Research England for the Inclusive Financial Technology Hub and the ESRC-funded Centre for Inclusive Trade Policy, led by the University of Sussex. The school is also the established home of the Decision Maker Panel and the Centre for Globalisation and Economic Policy.
Our work has attracted millions of pounds in awards and grants, featured hundreds of times in leading academic journals, earned thousands of citations. We have collaborated with experts in fields as diverse as psychology, political science, and anthropology. Our research-active staff provide strong support for early career researchers.
We strive for our research to make an impact beyond academia – helping boost economic competitiveness, improve the effectiveness of public services and policy, and enhance quality of life. We have made important contributions in all these areas through the work of our research centres and have produced a series of videos illustrating how some of our research can be understood in the real world.
