The Economics Network aims to enhance the quality of learning and teaching throughout the higher education economics community.
"By providing additional support to lecturers and students alike, [the Economics Network] plays an invaluable role in furthering the university study of economics.” - Sir Charles Bean, RES President and Former Deputy Governor of the Bank of England.
The Economics Network is supported by the Royal Economic Society, the Scottish Economic Society and 37 UK higher education economics departments. If your department is not yet part of this community please see the EN website for more information about benefits and how to join.
The Economics Network offers a range of departmental visits and workshops at no charge as well as national and international events.Contact the EN for more details.
The EN conducts regular surveys to research the current state of teaching and learning in Economics Higher Education in the UK including National Surveys of Economics Lecturers.
