The Financial Markets Group Research Centre (@FMG_LSE) was established in 1987 at the LSE. The FMG is a leading centre in Europe for policy research into financial markets. 

The Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) (@cepr_org) was founded in 1983 to enhance the quality of economic policy-making within Europe and beyond, by fostering high quality, policy-relevant economic research, and disseminating it widely to decision-makers in the public and private sectors.

VoxEU (@voxeu) – CEPR’s policy portal – was set up in June 2007 to promote "research-based policy analysis and commentary by leading economists".
