Welcome to the Institute for Comprehensive Analysis of the Economy

Following the aftermath of the global financial crises, in 2009, the Johannes Kepler University established the Institute for Comprehensive Analysis of the Economy (ICAE). The ICAE understands economic developement as a result of complex interaction between a set of various influencing factors therefore strongly emphazing interdisciplinary approaches, conceptual openness, and theoretical diversity.
