CORE's activities integrate fundamental and applied research. They are oriented towards:

  • Theoretical and methodological research that aims at providing frameworks for the analysis of a wide range of decision problems arising out of economic policy and management of private and public enterprises
  • The development of Methods of Optimisation and Statistical Inference leading to the solution of decision problems, once the appropriate framework of analysis has been provided
  • The development of Computational tools (algorithms and computer programs), whereby the above methods are made operational for use in empirical studies.
