The research group Theory & Methods has been gradually – and then formally – created in the 2008-2012 period, and includes theoretical and methodological research by cef.up members with a fundamental nature and thus useful for the analysis of a variety of economic problems, notably in fields pertaining to other cef.up groups. The Group covers two main fields: Theoretic Foundations (comprising economic theory and economic thought) and Measurement (comprising econometrics, scientometrics, and experimental economics). 


The Research Director is Joana Resende, and the group has the following researchers:
