The IOEA aims to promote advanced and original research on institutional and organizational economics. Institutional and organizational economics (IOE) has been one of the most prolific fields of research during the past forty years. It combines theoretical and empirical analyses of the diversity of mechanisms, formal and informal, allowing coordination between agents, interaction between these different mechanisms and their consequences on economic performances and dynamics.
IOE is characterized by two strong traditions.
Beyond the will to promote IOE research, another major target of the academy is to foster its development among young researchers, to identify promising talents, and to spread their work within the community. PhD candidates, Post-doc., as well as young professors, benefit from both a high-level training and a chance to fit into the international network of the IOE. Moreover, the academy enables an international network of researchers able to work together to be built up gradually.
