The ERUDITE research team (ERUDITE:  Équipe de Recherche sur l'Utilisation des Données Individuelles en lien avec la Théorie Economique, i.e. "Research Team on the Use of Individual Data in relation to Economic Theory") aims to develop and promote research in economics within the PRES Paris-Est. It is a co-founding member of the CNRS Research Federation (FR 2042), Théorie et Évaluation des Politiques Publiques (TEPP, i.e. Theory and Evaluation of Public Policies).

ERUDITE is a research unit in applied economics specialised in the use of econometric techniques, the mobilisation of databases and the evaluation of public policies.

ERUDITE is composed of two internal teams under the supervision of the University of Paris-Est Créteil (UPEC) and the Université of Gustave Eiffel, both of which are founding members of Paris-Est Sup.

ERUDITE doctoral students belong to the Organisations, Marchés, Institutions (i.e. "Organisations, Markets, Institutions") doctoral school (OMI, ED 530).

University of Paris-Est Créteil Val-de-Marne

With its 7 faculties, 8 schools and institutes, 1 observatory and 33 research laboratories, the University of Paris-Est Créteil has been present in all fields of knowledge since 1970. Its teacher-researchers, lecturers and over 3,000 temporary staff from public and private partners train over 36,000 students and workers of all ages every year.



Gustave Eiffel University

Cities and territories are constantly changing. Based on this observation, six educational and research institutions with recognised specialisations in the fields of sustainable cities are combining their skills and know-how to create a university of international standing and of a new kind: the Gustave Eiffel University. The result of a common history that began over 20 years ago, since 1st January 2020, this new institution brings together a university (UPEM), a research institute (IFSTTAR), a school of architecture (Éav&t) and three engineering schools (EIVP, ENSG and ESIEE Paris).
