PortEconomics PortEconomics is a web-based initiative aiming at generating knowledge about seaports. It is developed and empowered by the members of the PortEconomics group, that are actively involved in academic and contract research in port economics, management, and policy.The teaching activities of the participating scholars include specialized courses on port economics management, planning and policy. These courses are offered to students and other audiences in Europe or else, via lectures and assignments based on the output of individual or collective research activities and the most recent developments in port studies.
Scholars participating in the PortEconomics initiative also collaborate with an extensive international network of academics interested in seaport studies and research in all five continents. These collaborators act as associate members, with their activities reported via the PortEconomics website. Such collaborations are further advanced via their leading participation s in relevant international scientific associations, like the International Association of Maritime Economists (IAME) and the Port Performance Research Network (PPRN).
All these activities have resulted in an extensive list of relevant publications.The members of the group are actively involved in academic, as well as contract, research in port economics, management, and policy.
