OSE – Opening Economic Science – supported by the Paris School of Economics

This project was born out of an observation: the central paradigm of economic discipline, organized in the broadest sense around the axiom of individual rationality, has proved to be remarkably powerful; in the face of the increasing complexity of the world, however, its limitations are increasingly evident. The project “OSE-Opening Economic Science” aims to address the challenges to the central paradigm of the discipline in the fields of expertise of itspartners. Since October 2017, OSE has been part of the EUR PGSE.

ReFi – Financial Regulation – supported by ESCP Europe

The Labex ReFi was a multidisciplinary research laboratory dedicated to the evaluation of regulatory policies. It aimed to advance knowledge of the functioning of financial systems and their regulation and to independently “advise” and “guide” the action of public authorities in the implementation of regulatory policies by providing expertise and academic rigour. The Labex ReFi was set up at the initiative of the University Paris 1 Panthéon Sorbonne, the CNAM, the ENA, and ESCP Europe (“project leader”) in the context of the “Grand Borrowing”.
