Partner organisations

The Economics Network is delighted to be partnered with the following organisations, all of whom share our goals of promoting and supporting innovations and effective practice in economics education.

The Government Economic Service (GES)

The GES and Economics Network are committed to supporting the development of highly skilled economics graduates who are well-equipped to work in and develop the UK economy.

"The Economics Network is tremendously important for the health of economics in the UK, and so the Government Economic Service had no hesitation in accepting an invitation to partner with the Network. I applaud the organisations now supporting the Economics Network and hope to see other economists and their organisations rally round to grow this wonderful resource."

Andy Ross, Former Deputy Director,
Government Economic Service

 

The American Economic Association - Committee on Economic Education (AEA-CEE)

The AEA-CEE and Economics Network both actively work to improve, inform and facilitate research on economics education. 

"Given our mutual interest in economic education, the Economics Network and the AEA–CEE have agreed to work to promote the efficient flow of information about activities of the two groups, and to explore avenues of cooperation for specific projects that may arise."

Sam Allgood, Former Chair, AEE–CEE
 

The Black Economists Network (TBEN)

 The Economics and TBEN share the goals of improving diversity within our discipline and supporting Black economists within higher education.

"The Black Economists Network (TBEN) is an organisation which seeks to challenge the lack of diversity within economics related fields by bringing together and raising the profile of Black people in economics. At TBEN, one of the things we’re most passionate about is educating our members by equipping current and aspiring professionals with knowledge on career options and the skills needed for progression. Enhancing the quality of learning in the higher education community is a value that is shared with The Economics Network. As such, we believe that it would be a great opportunity to collaborate. We have a unique pool of members that include lecturers and PhD students who are keen to be mentored, establish themselves in the field of academia and contribute to economic debates. What’s more, we have regular academic discussions which could help to provide a different perspective on topical issues. For example, the disproportionate impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the Black and minority ethic community. Greater diversity is essential for institutions reaching their fullest potential!”

Joseph Oyegoke, Founding Member of T-BEN
 

The Association of European Economics Education (AEEE)

The AEEE and Economics Network both serve as hubs for the sharing of ideas and support within the economics education community.

"The AEEE is looking forward to working with the Economics Network in our aim to circulate more information between all levels of economics education. Every two years, the AEEE holds conference in a different country, giving members and partners, such as the Economics Network, opportunities to share ideas about classroom practice and observe a wide range of current developments."

Thijs de Gaaij, Secretary General, AEEE

 

Educational Innovations in Economics and Business (EDiNEB)

  EDiNEB and the Economics Network work to promote
 innovation and best practice in economics education and curriculum development.

"The Educational Innovations in Economics and Business (EDiNEB) is happy to announce our partnership with Economics Network UK. By combining the strong UK presence of the Economics Network with a more internationally focused EDiNEB, we hope to further strengthen and disseminate state-of-the art innovation and best-practice in economics and business education."

Bart Rienties, Chair, EDiNEB

 

The Association of Corporate Treasurers (ACT)

The ACT and the Economics Network hope to increase awareness of career options for economics graduates and to promote employability skills within their education.

"The ACT is delighted to be working with The Economics Network. Economists understand the environment in which the treasurer works, they appreciate the bigger picture that surrounds what treasurers do on a day-to-day basis. In these challenging times, corporate treasury offers exciting, forward looking, rewarding careers for economics graduates. This collaboration is another example of the ACT reaching out positively to the higher education sector to grow awareness of treasury as a discipline, and as a profession, early in people’s careers."

James Lockyer, Former Development Director, ACT
