Research Programs, 2016/17

The Cowles Foundation provides support for research and research related activities through four core Research Program Areas: Econometrics, Economic Theory, Macroeconomics, and Structural Microeconomics. Each of these broad areas has deep ties to the Cowles tradition and provides a foundation for other fields of inquiry in economics and related fields.

Cowles Program Areas sponsor visiting faculty and post-docs, organize conferences, and provide other research resources at Yale:
