Aims & Objectives
Developing cutting-edge research
The Janeway Institute will build on the research of Cambridge-INET, with its hundreds of working papers and research contributions, and publications that have helped redefine fields. We’ll be researching fundamental questions ranging from monetary policy to behavioural norms, from trading in financial markets to supply chain disruptions but also developing fundamental methods to analyse these questions.
Producing the next generation of economists
One of the Institute’s key priorities centres on continuing the successful postdoctoral programme established by Cambridge INET, by supporting and training young scholars to develop critical minds and focus on bringing new thinking into the mainstream.
Creating a international hub for new ideas
Bringing together researchers from around the globe, both in economics, and across the sciences, the Janeway Institute will welcome hundreds of visitors over the years, and host many conferences, workshops, reading groups and webinars.
