GEN - Governance and Economics research Network


GEN focuses on four fields: Public economics and governance, circular economy, regional and sectoral economics and family businesses. Concerning the first vector, GEN adopts an interdisciplinary perspective which integrates expertise in political science and economic geography. Our analysis of both public expenditure and revenues pays special attention to federal intergovernmental relationships and decentralization processes. Among other current projects, GEN is a partner of the FRESHER consortium (H2020). Knowledge transfer activities in this area, include networks DERNET (Fiscal and Political Decentralization Research Network), RIFDE and Red Localis. Our Circular Economy vector follows the same kind of interdisciplinary view, devoted to increasing materials productivity and efficiency, and to develop new perspectives to decoupling economic growth and environmental impacts from energy consumption, water and raw materials. Our interest in regional and sectoral economics includes a mix of topics, but our efforts are focused on the analysis of the Galician economy and on sport economics, joining economists and specialists in sport sciences. Our knowledge transfer in this area is managed by the Galician Economic Forum. Finally, research and teaching activities of GEN on family businesses are performed under the umbrella provided by the Chair of Family Business of the University of Vigo. This chair is integrated into the Spanish Family Business Institute. GEN is a member of ECOBAS.
