Mission and Strategy

Since July 2012, the Economics Network has been supported by the Royal Economic Society (RES), the Scottish Economic Society (SES), the University of Bristol and a number of economics departments across the UK.


The Economics Network aims to enhance the quality and status of university economics education as well as the wider understanding of economics.

Strategic Aims

EN1 To ensure that practice, content and structure in economics education is effective and evidence-based.

EN2 To enable, undertake, and share research into the practice and context of university economics education to serve all its stakeholders.

EN3 To support current and prospective students of economics and to promote the understanding of economics more widely


The management board oversees the activities of the Network.

An independent panel of experts was set up in 2015 to review the quality of the Network's training provision annually on behalf of the learned societies. As a result, our workshops are endorsed by the SES and RES.
