ASSET is a group of economics departments and economics research centres that are all based in Southern Europe and the Mediterranean region. Currently there are twenty two member institutions locted in Algiers, Cyprus, France, Greece, Israel, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Tunisia and Turkey.
The purpose of the association is to encourage cooperation and exchange of researchers and ideas among the participating research institutions in the general field of analytical and quantitative economics and econometrics.
