GAINS - Groupe d’Analyse des Itinéraires et Niveaux Salariaux - Equipe d'accueil 2167

Group for the analysis of itineraries and wage levels (GAINS) - Research group 2167


GAINS consists of two teams: one in Economic Sciences (EURESEMans) and the other in Management Sciences (ARGUMans). The former works in macroeconomics and on the labour market, as well as on the analysis of risk and the demand for insurance or social protection linked to them. The latter develops its research in the study of organisations, accounting, control and auditing, marketing and the social and solidarity economy.
In 2008, GAINS was a founding member of the CNRS research federation “Travail, Emploi et Politiques Publiques - Institute for Labour, Employment and Public Policies” (TEPP) which now includes 10 laboratories.
