MET Economics is an independent economic research centre established in 1992 by researchers from different Italian universities and institutions.
MET main activity is to perform research, analysis, and consultancies, with a specific focus on public policy and economic structure.
We focus on economic and financial evaluations, monitoring and strengthening of public policies, economic analysis of industrial measures- on a European, national or regional scale- to support SMEs, organisation and management of training activities, assistance to firms, and defining macroeconomic scenarios.
The MET characterizes itself, on a national level, as an independent source that periodically provides a study on public interventions attempting to sustain private activities. This work led to the building up of a solid archive containing all the main regulations, issued by local, regional, and national entities, that aimed at supporting industrial firms and production service businesses.
From 2006, MET also began a vast bi-annual survey on firms belonging to the industrial sector and production services (see MET Survey).
The analysis (Rapporto MET) focuses on: firm structural features, competition aspects, local networks, supply chains, emerging challenges, and external needs (policy-wise too); that these economic agents manifest, alongside the classical matters related to competition and health of firms.
