The Research Centre was established in 1983 as part of the Athens University of Economics and Business in order to coordinate and facilitate research by members of the University's faculty. In this capacity, the Centre is collaborating with other university institutions, public entities and organisations, private enterprises, international organisations and selected qualified individuals.

The Centre is devoted to the promotion of theoretical, applied and policy research in the general fields of economics and management as well as in the fields of informatics and applied information systems. In this context, the Centre has completed a large number of studies, most of which have been financed by the European Union. Emphasis is given to the analysis of problems and problem-oriented research. The preliminary processing of raw data is arranged in cooperation with other research institutions and statistical services.

Research at the Centre is carried out mainly by members of the academic staff of the University. Visiting scholars and holders of short-term appointments may also actively be engaged in the research activities of the Centre. In performing their tasks, faculty members enjoy full freedom with respect to research topics chosen, methods employed and conclusions drawn from their own research work. The Centre bears no responsibility for any of these conclusions. All research is undertaken with a view towards eventual publication in scholarly journals, technical reports and monographs.
