Message from Our Scientific Directors

Nova SBE Economics of Education Knowledge Center

Welcome to the Nova SBE Economics of Education Knowledge Center’s website. In this center, we dedicate ourselves to academic research in Economics of Education, which cover a wide range of questions, from the most basic education level to life-long learning.

Our aim is to develop research driven by data and evidence-based knowledge, so as to promote the debate and discussion, in collaboration with scientific fields and institutions worldwide. Thus, we intend to contribute towards the creation of knowledge that can aid decision-makers in matters related to education.

As Scientific Directors of this center, we believe in the power of education in improving people’s lives and that we have an important role to play in this development process through the promotion of newer and better public policies in Education.

We invite you all to getting to know our work and our initiatives.

Ana Balcão Reis and Luís Catela Nunes

Scientific Directors of the Nova SBE Economics of Education Knowledge Center
