Research Group in Welfare Economics

About us

The Research Group in Welfare Economics (CREB) is part of the University of Barcelona. All CREB researchers also belong to the BEAT Institute and to the UB School of Economics.

The main objective of CREB is to promote high-standard research in Macroeconomics and Microeconomics. Regarding Macroeconomics, the main research areas encompass economic growth, inequality, development, international economics, and labor economics, among others. Regarding Microeconomics, the main research areas are industrial organization and behavioral economics, with applications in telecommunications, law, and the environment, among others. 

We organize several activities. CREB actively participates in the seminar series of the Economic Theory section of the Department of Economics at Universitat de Barcelona. Moreover, we organize two Internal Seminars in Macroeconomics and Microeconomics, where the members of the group present their work in progress. Since 2022 we organize annually the UB Macroeconomics Workshop and the UB Microeconomics Workshop. You can find info on the first editions here and here.
