ECO is a multidisciplinary group of CREST (Center for Research in Economics and Statistics, research unit CNRS 9194) that focuses on economics, law and management and whose research projects explore our understanding of digital transformations and their impact on the economy, companies and public policy.

Research activities are based on a wide range of quantitative and qualitative methodologies and, in keeping with the group’s mission, research is both theoretical and empirical, and intended for academics as well as for public bodies. For instance, ECOGE has designed a theoretical data taxation model, which has contributed to France Stratégie’s work on that topic. Research projects provide fresh insight on topics that include digital platforms, blockchain, artificial intelligence, algorithms, data, the sharing economy, digital entrepreneurship, frugal innovation and data privacy.
