Centre for Economic Performance (CEP)


Start date: 1 April 1995
End date: 30 September 2015

The Centre addresses several key themes which impact on the UKs economic performance. These include the impact of both the internal structure and organisation of firms and the external market environment on output, productivity and technical change. An important element in a country's economic performance is its workforce. Both the efficient utilisation and the improvement through training of a workforce are tackled by the Centre. The impact of legal and institutional structures is also addressed, plus more fundamental questions of who sets up firms, where and why.

The Centre's six research programmes for 2010-2015 are:

  • Education and Skills
  • Globalisation
  • Labour Markets
  • Macro Programme
  • Productivity and Innovation
  • Wellbeing
