The Research Centre on Industrial and Public Economics (CREIP), created in 2010, is a center located at the Economics Department of the University Rovira i Virgili (Reus, Catalonia, Spain).
The CREIP focuses on two themes of economic analysis: Industrial Organization and Public Economics, and has a team of over thirty researchers from three areas such as Regional Economics, Environmental Economics and Markets and Institutions. The CREIP’s aim is to support the research activities of its members in these fields and stimulate the opening of new lines of work. In addition, CREIP activities include organizing seminars, workshops, conferences and international congresses. These activities are so eminently scientific, but are also designed to transfer knowledge to society and to promote the economic growth and the environmental sustainability of the institutions of the surrounding areas.
