The Macro & Growth Research Group looks at factors that shape the aggregate performance of the economy. The Research Group aims at contributing to scientific knowledge on macroeconomics dynamics overall, from cyclical fluctuations to long-run economic performance, including inter-actions between these macro phenomena.

As a means to achieve this goal, the Research Group is organized into two Research Areas that ultimately compile a number of specific research topics in which we have a competitive expertise - Business Cycles and Markets, and Long-term Economic Performance.


The Research Director is Pedro Mazeda Gil, and the group has the following researchers:
