London, United Kingdom

NIESR is an economic research institute, with over 60 years of experience in applying academic excellence to the needs of business and policymakers. NIESR's objective is to promote, through quantitative research, a deeper understanding of the interaction of economic and social forces that affect people's lives so that they may be improved. NIESR is independent of all political interests. It receives no core funding from the government and is not affiliated with any single university, although its staff regularly undertake projects in collaboration with leading academic institutions. Its research interests are constantly changing in response to new needs but embrace most of the issues that shape economic performance.
