Economics research unit announced

The Finnish government has promised to establish a “top-level research and teaching unit” in Helsinki to improve evidence-based policymaking in economics.

The Helsinki Graduate School of Economics, launched by prime minister Juha Sipilä on 19 September, aims to train PhD students and offer up to 15 professorships by 2022. It will be a collaboration between Aalto University, the University of Helsinki and the Hanken School of Economics.

The centre aims to satisfy growing demand for economics expertise in the planning and impact assessment of policy, the government said. Main areas include macroeconomics, public finance, applied microeconomics and knowledge-based decision making.
