Research Programme on Economics

We conduct economic research, in particular, on topics in public economics and labour economics and related fields, such as regional economics and development economics. Our research topics cover, to exemplify, normative aspects of public provision of private and public goods, the impacts of taxation, income distribution and inequality, labour market policies and development aid.

The research programme is divided into the following three, non-formal and partly overlapping, teams:

  • Taxation and income distribution, directed by Professor Matti Tuomala
  • Behavioural and development economics, directed by Professor Jukka Pirttilä
  • Labour economics and applied econometrics, directed by Professor Jari Vainiomäki

Although the research programme is based on a single discipline, the researcheres work closely with colleagues from related fields, in particular from psychology, administrative studies and health science.

Collaborators within Finland include colleagues from HECER, University of Jyväskylä, University of Turku, The Government Institute for Economic Research (VATT), The Labour Institute for Economic Research and UNU-WIDER. Our relations to researchers in other Nordic countries are also close.

Research reports are published  as Tampere Economic Working Papers, Net Series, since 2001.
