Erasmus UPT's research focuses on three main themes:

Contract and academic research

Within these themes, Erasmus UPT carries out two main types of applied economic research and studies, i.e. contract research and academic research. Contract research aims to deliver market-oriented solutions grounded in science, while academic research contributes to Erasmus UPT's position as a knowledge institute. Erasmus UPT's researchers aim to create spillover effect in between the three main themes and often combine the different perspectives within their researches.
