Mission

Founded in 1966, the Center for Operations Research and Econometrics (CORE) is an interdisciplinary research center of UCLouvain. In 2010, CORE became one of the «poles» of IMMAQ, presently LIDAM, a UCLouvain research institute associating researchers from four different research entities: CORE, IRES (Institut de Recherches Economiques et Sociales), ISBA (Institute of Statistics, Biostatistics and Actuarial Sciences) and LFIN (Louvain Finance).

CORE follows three objectives. The first one is the development of scientific research in the fields of economics, econometrics, operations research and quantitative and economic geography. The second objective is the training of young researchers at the doctoral and postdoctoral stages of their career. The third objective is the promotion of local and international scientific exchanges and collaborations.

CORE’s activities integrate fundamental and applied research to shed analytical light on a wide range of issues arising from economic policy and the management of private and public organizations. These research activities build on a common foundation of quantitative modeling and rigorous mathematical reasoning.
