Scientific Partners

PSE has developed close link with a number of scientific partners.

Scientific “College” Partners (PSE board)

The GENES (Group of National Schools of Economics and Statistics) was established on January the 1st, 2011 as a public scientific, cultural and professional institution (EPSCP), under the technical supervision of the ministry of the economy, finance and industry (INSEE). It groups together four institutions: CREST (Centre for Research in Economics and Statistics), CEPE (Centre for the Study of Economic Programmes), ENSAE (National school of statistics and economic administration) and ENSAI (National school of statistics and information). Its purpose is to conduct research, carry out special studies and expertise projects, and to disseminate information. It is also charged with developing ways to access data, especially public statistics, which it does through the Centre for Secure Remote Access to Data which allows French and overseas researchers to securely access data produced by administrative units, including INSEE. GENES is represented on the board of PSE in the person of Antoine Frachot, and a number of projects are currently jointly directed by PSE and GENES, notably through CREST (and the Institute for Public Policy, IPP) and ENSAE (partner in the APE Masters).

The National Institute for Demographic Studies (INED) was created in 1945, primarily to study the national and international demographic conjuncture (of rates of marriage, birth, mortality and migration) and their trends and «applications» (including in social life, the economy, public health, human geography and history). Under the direction of Chantal Cases, INED employs around 200 people, including 60 permanent researchers, 110 technicians and and engineeers, and around 20 doctoral students and associated researchers. Within the college system of rotating chairs, Chantal Cases sat on the board of PSE in 2009-2010. A number of projects – including the labex OSE – link the two institutions: work on the ZFUs (Special Urban Zones), on unemployment in the Ile-de-France region, the effects of the Very Fast Train service on urban growth, and the like.

For more than 60 years, the Institute for Development Research (IRD) has engaged in research, expertise, development and training activities aimed at contributing to economic, social and cultural development around the world. This institute comprises 900 researchers, 1,000 engineers and technicians, and 350 local employees who participate directly in more than 50 countries of the global South – in the context of its numerous national, European and international programmes. Laurent Vidal, director of the Societies department, represents the IRD on the PSE board. The IRD commitment is focused on the PPD programme: it has financed the PPD Masters degree since its creation and three of its researchers partipate in the programme as course leaders. Two other IRD members are associate professors at PSE. Furthermore, IRD and PSE work together directly on the ambitious project Afristory (a study of African economic history from 1850 to 2000).

GRAND EMPRUNT

Under the auspices of the “Grand Emprunt”, PSE won approval from the jury for two important projects:

  • Labex OSE - Opening Economics, managed by PSE in partnership with: the Centre d’économie de la Sorbonne, the UMR Paris-Jourdan Science Economiques, the unity « demographic economics » of INED, the CEPII , the Cepremap and the J-PAL Europe. More information...
    >> Within OSE, the IPP-Institut des Politiques Publiques has been created and is now developped through a PSE/CREST partnership - www.ipp.eu
  • Equipex D-FIH - Historical Financial Data, managed by PSE with the GIS Quetelet, the Institut Louis Bachelier and IODS (Insead-Observatoire européen de l’épargne Data Services). More information...

A French research centre in the field of international economics, the CEPII produces studies, research, data bases and analyses of the major issues of the global economy, and organises conferences and colloquia on international economy questions. Created in 1978, it is attached to the Centre for Strategic Analysis; its work is aimed at decison makers in both public and private sectors, international institutions, economists, civil society, the media and businesses, through the CEPII Business Club.

The Centre for economic research and its applications (CEPREMAP) is an association whose members are the CNRS, the ENS and the economic administration units. Chaired by Jean-Pierre Jouyet and directed by Daniel Cohen, CEPREMAP acts as an interface between the academy and the principal state economic administration. Around one hundred researchers (including a large contingent from PSE) and several French and international institutions take part in its activities – including large research projects and the «Opuscules CEPREMAP». CEPREMAP also subsidises the PPD Masters course, by offering students a series of talks by senior executive economists both French and foreign. In addition, PSE and CEPREMAP, in partnership with the Centre for Economic Policy Research (London), publish a book series together with Oxford University Press.

In 2010 PSE, together with a number of partners – mostly also partners in PROGEDO (Protection and management of data for the humanities and social sciences) – created the GIS Quetelet: EHESS, ENS, ENS Lyon, INED, Institut de recherche et de documentation en economie de la sante, INSEE, CNRS, Université de Caen Basse-Normandie, Sciences Po, Université de Lille 1, Université Lumière Lyon II and PSE. The GIS, a consolidation of PROGEGDO, addresses crucial questions related to the organisation and funding of the production and dissemination of data in the social sciences.

The Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL), founded in 2003 at MIT by Abhijit Banerjee, Esther Duflo and Sendhil Mullainathan, is exemplary in the field of research on development and the fight against poverty. To date, its past and current program evaluations amount to 300, in more than one hundred countries. J-PAL Europe (one of the five regional nodes) is based at PSE and brings together researchers from the Foundation and from both other French institutions (including CREST, DARES, Sciences PO), and other European countries (including the UK, Belgium, Denmark and Sweden). It is currently conducting more than 50 evaluations in France and Denmark as well as in developing countries.
