Ramon Xifré

I am an economist mainly interested on the competitiveness of the Spanish and EU economies and the related policies on issues like business environment and entrepreneurship, internationalization, R&D&I and industrial policy.

Since 2004 I am Associate Professor at the Escola Superior de Comerç Internacional (ESCI-UPF), an international business school associated to Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) in Barcelona. Since 2012 I am also invited researcher at the European Central Bank Competitiveness Research Network (CompNet) and Policy Research Fellow at the Public-Private Research Center (PPSRCat IESE Business School.

From January 2009 to December 2011 I was on leave, serving as Senior Economic Policy Advisor at the Spanish Prime Minister Economic Bureau.
