About Us

The Horizon 2020 Twinning project EdEN marks the start of an enhanced cooperation in the field of education economics between three top ranked economics of education research groups in EU-15 countries – KU Leuven, U Maastricht and Politecnico di Milano – and the CERSHAS. Education economics is one of the most important applied economics fields that provide direct evidence to policy makers on educational issues. The proposed project focuses on three clusters of methodologies – program evaluation, structural modeling and efficiency analysis – and fosters cooperation between the institutions along more specific research lines within these clusters. The project also increases the awareness of the education economics among Ph.D. students from the participating countries as well as at building a stronger network of already practicing education economists within the specific research lines.
