Welcome to the home page of the European Political Economy Infrastructure Consortium (EPIC).
EPIC is a now completed 3-year joint project of the London School of Economics, the European University Institute Florence, the Fundación Juan March Madrid and the Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin. It was further supported by the Directorate General for Research of the European Commission and the Ionian Academy.
The project was active between November 1999 and October 2002. An evaluation of the project can be found under the "Documents, reports and publications" link.
EPIC's aim was to provide young researchers in political economy from all over Europe with both substantive and methodological training in political economy. This training complemented what was offered in their home institutions, and gave them the chance very early on in their research career to build research networks and gain experience in participating in academic workshops.
