The CEFER team of PhDs specializing in fields ranging from macro-economics to financial markets seeks to combine its extensive academic knowledge with innovative methods in economic research. Focus is always placed on the novelty of ideas and methods used allowing the researchers to creatively define relevant research problems and solutions.
The Center is based in Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania - one of Europe’s fastest growing economies. Vilnius is famous for its unique old town, vibrant culture and easy access to major European cities.
