Center for Economic Studies

The Center for Economic Studies is the Economics Department of the KU Leuven. Currently the full-time academic staff of the department includes 22 professors, coordinated by Prof. Dr. Frank Verboven. The research covers a wide range of areas in the broadly defined field of economics. 

All CES research groups have built up considerable expertise in their fields, producing fundamental and policy-oriented research that finds an outlet in top general and specialized journals. The research groups also participate in many European, national and regional  research projects. Professors are often called upon by national and international policy makers to give scientific advice. The Center attracts international guest professors as well as research assistants.
