CREAM is a research unit that brings together economists working on:
- International economics
- Public economics
- Development economics (local / global)
- Industrial economics
- Labor economics
- The social economy
- Financial economics
- Education economics
This strategy is based on a complementarity of interests and skills acquired by the members of the team on themes or geographical areas. Scientific output is characterized by numerous publications in peer-reviewed journals, books and book chapters, as well as papers in national and international conferences, which contribute to the unit visibility within the scientific community. In terms of outreach in the landscape of local research, the research team develops privileged links with the Humanities and Social Sciences Research Institute (IRIHS).
The international integration of the unit results from the research and teaching collaborations that members have established with numerous countries: either as part of research projects or international cooperation or through participation in research networks defined around common or complementary themes. It has also been supported by the emergence of new projects in line with transversal topics.
