Centre for Research in Applied Economics
The Centre for Research in Applied Economics (CRAE) was established in July 2006 to strengthen collaboration among applied economists and other researchers at Curtin University.
Located in the School of Economics, Finance and Property, the key functions of CRAE are to promote economic research within Curtin University and provide support services to enhance and enable research. As advancement of innovative technology and the success of translation from innovative ideas to practical implementations rely heavily on economic analysis, CRAE provides a nexus between scientists and economists to collaborate. This facilitates demand driven research and the translation between innovation and their sustainable implementations as well as promoting a holistic approach to solve real world problems.
The goal of CRAE is achieved through developing and enhancing new and existing collaborative research networks; providing facilities for the sharing of research materials and data; maintaining relationships with the relevant professional societies of researchers; and lobbying internal and external partners to support applied economic research activities.
