Foun­ded in 2005, the Re­search In­sti­tute for Reg­u­lat­ory Eco­nom­ics is a think tank with the me­di­um-term goal of build­ing up know­ledge on the in­ter­play between com­pet­i­tion and de­mands for reg­u­la­tion. From 2005 – 2008, re­search by the In­sti­tute’s fac­ulty and gradu­ate stu­dents fo­cused mainly on net­work-­based en­ergy sup­ply­ing in­dus­tries.

Since 2009, the fo­cus of the In­sti­tute’s re­search has ex­pan­ded, most not­ably with regard to elec­tronic com­mu­nic­a­tions mar­kets. Ad­di­tion­ally, in the fu­ture we in­tend to widen our fo­cus fur­ther by in­clud­ing the reg­u­la­tion of postal ser­vices and rail­ways.

Aca­demic re­search­ers with na­tional and in­ter­na­tional back­grounds work to­gether, tak­ing an in­ter­dis­cip­lin­ary ap­proach to ad­dress is­sues in the fields of ef­fi­ciency meas­ure­ment in reg­u­lated in­dus­tries, ef­fect­ive­ness of reg­u­la­tion, and the re­la­tion­ship between reg­u­la­tion and in­nov­a­tion. We strive for a pro­duct­ive know­ledge ex­change with prac­ti­tion­ers, al­low­ing us to profit from their know­ledge while act­ing as con­sult­ants to the in­dustry.
