Welcome to the Institute for Comprehensive Analysis of the Economy

In the aftermath of the global financial crises, the Johannes Kepler University founded the Institute for Comprehensive Analysis of the Economy (ICAE) in 2009. At the ICAE, economic developement is understood as a result of the complex interaction between a set of different influencing factors and therefore, a strong emphazise is given to interdisciplinary approaches, conceptual openness and theoretical diversity. 

On our website you can find information on about our team, current research projects, publications & ICAE Working Paper Series, news & events and media coverage.
