The Toulouse School of Economics (TSE)

The Toulouse School of Economics (TSE) is a world-renowned center for research and education hosting more than 150 international faculty including Jean Tirole, a 2014 Nobel laureate in economics, and 2,500 students.

TSE ranks 9th  among economics departments worldwide according to the RePEc ranking. TSE is particularly renowned for its scientific contributions in industrial economics, finance, energy and climate economics, and econometrics.

TSE students enjoy a cosmopolitan, open learning environment. More than 45% of their students and 30% of their faculty come from abroad, making up a total of 90 nationalities on campus.

Most of EfD’s collaboration with TSE is with the Environmental and natural resource economics group and the TSE Energy & Climate Center.

In the Environmental and natural resource economics group TSE researchers and Ph.D. students work on Environmental Economics and Natural Resource Management. Topics of research include the economics of natural resources, the evaluation of public policies, the political economy of the environment, economics and biology, and behavioral environmental economics.

The TSE Energy & Climate Center is a platform for its university researchers and students interested in the fields of energy and climate economics. It brings together industrial and academic partners to discuss the economics of energy and climate, to build new analytical tools to meet new challenges. Regular workshops provide an opportunity to share knowledge on the institutional framework within and outside the European Union, empirical observations, and basic theoretical modeling.
