Цели и задачи

The Groningen Growth and Development Centre is a research group of economists and economic historians at the Economics Department of the University of Groningen. It was created in June 1992 within the Economics Department of the University. The group carries out research on comparative analysis of levels of economic performance and differences in growth rates in the world economy. This research programme is one in which Groningen has developed a comparative advantage since the mid-1970s.

The aims of the Centre are:

  • furthering high quality research in the field of economic growth and development inside the Netherlands
  • increasing cooperation with research workers outside the Netherlands
  • increasing the attractiveness of Groningen for visiting scholars in this field
  • improving access to external funding for projects and research activity

The activities of the Centre are primarily in the field of research. This research is largely based on a range of comprehensive databases on indicators of growth and development, which the Centre compiles and maintains on a regular basis. The participants of the Centre publish papers, articles and books often linked to these databases. It also organises seminars and conferences, and it submits and supports (joint) proposals to finance research in this field. There is a Working Paper series and the Centre also publishes its own monographs

The geographic scope of our research is wide. It covers five main regions of the world, although many of our studies compare the performance of countries in different regions. In addition, a substantial part of our research focusses on the (comparative) economic performance of the Netherlands. Studies generally cover periods of several decades up to two centuries
