The Austrian Economics Center is a politically independent research institute committed to the ideas of the Austrian School of Economics. The Austrian Economics Center considers public policies, identifies economic alternatives, and attempts to realize them based on analysis and academic research.
The Center's basic goal is the promotion of a free, responsible and prosperous society. To achieve this goal, it works on economic and socio-political questions, prepares studies, and recommends solutions.
The Pan-European Think Tank.
ECFR is an award-winning international think-tank that aims to conduct cutting-edge independent research; provide a safe meeting space for policy-makers, activists and intellectuals to share ideas; we build coalitions for change and promote informed debate about Europe’s role in the world. In 2007, ECFR’s founders set about creating a pan-European institution that could combine establishment credibility with intellectual insurgency. Now in its 10th year, ECFR is uniquely placed to continue providing a pan-European perspective, with our network of national offices in seven European capitals and over 60 staff from more than 25 different countries.
