Background note: Founded in 1906, EDHEC is one of the leading French business schools. Accredited by the three main international academic organisations (AACSB (US-Global), AMBA (UK-Global) and EFMD (Europe-Global)), EDHEC has been developing a strategy for European excellence for several years which led to the creation of the EDHEC Risk and Asset Management Research Centre in 2001, today made up of 32 professors, engineers and research associates. In a desire to ensure that the research it carries out is truly applicable in practice, all of EDHEC's research work must be part of a research programme, the relevance and goals of which are validated from both an academic and business viewpoint.
Since February 2006, EDHEC has been developing an Economics research centre, comprised today of over ten researchers, focusing on the assessment of public policy.
