Details
Mission and Objectives: 
The Jean Monnet Group on Competition and Regional Development in the European Union, Competition and Development Research Group (C & D), is an interdisciplinary group of Economic Analysis and Business Administration, which was formed in a natural way around the activities of the Chair Jean Monnet of Industrial Economics granted by the University Council of the European Action Jean Monnet in 1997. The group besides the research work is involved in consulting and reporting on issues related to the economics of competition, business competitiveness and development. The group combines basic and applied research in the areas of Economics, Consumer Behaviour and Regional Development Policy. The big challenge made by the Competition and Development Group is the integration of the system as a dynamic business and value creation in models of growth and development and the combination of measures for the promotion of regional policy with the competitive forces of the integration into the European market and globally.
