CEMP develops and applies methods for modelling behavior of
individual economic agents, such as consumers and firms, and the
impact of relevant policy interventions. We focus on the
development of application-oriented micro-econometric methods and
the introduction of state-of-the-art quantitative technologies to
applied microeconomic research to promote a close integration of
microeconomic theory and econometric methodology. CEMP encourages
interdisciplinary research among the fields of econometrics,
applied microeconomics, statistics, computer sciences, and other
CEMP conducts research and organizes conferences, workshops
and training courses. Academic and professional economists, social
scientists, statisticians, and computer scientists from China and
abroad are welcome at CEMP events.
CEMP maintains an extensive network of fellows at home and
abroad. It intends to become a leading research institute in the
field of micro-econometrics in China.
CEMP is inside the Institute for Economic and Social Research
(IESR) at Jinan University and encourages collaborations among
faculty members in IESR. CEMP complies with the IESR regulations
for tenure and promotion.
