The LSE has launched a new Research Impact website which highlights the many ways the School’s research has positively influenced public life – including in business, government, the media and civil society. The Department of Economics also highlights some case studies| of faculty research influencing public life.


Research Centres

Most research activity is integrated within collaborative programmes organised by LSE research centres. The main economics-related centres are the Suntory and Toyota International Centre for Economics and Related Disciplines| (STICERD), the Centre for Economic Performance| (CEP), the Financial Markets Group| (FMG), the Centre for Analysis of Social Exclusion| (CASE), the Spatial Economics Research Centre| (SERC), the International Growth Centre| (IGC), and the Centre for Macroeconomics| (CFM). These provide a first-class research environment.
