Research Groups – Semilleros

The macroeconomics and microeconomics research groups of the Faculty of Economics are a space for discussion of theoretical and applied topics in economics. Undergraduate and postgraduate students, researchers and teachers participate in the event, generating spaces for discussion around proposed topics each week, to debate over a two-hour period, working papers, suggested readings, and academic publications.


  • Motivate students to actively participate in research topics to create positive inertia in the research structure of the Faculty.
  • Strengthen the academic formation of undergraduate and graduate students by providing them with practical and theoretical tools for the analysis of topics seen in class.
  • Train and reinforce students’ skills in the use of programs such asPhyton®, Matlab-Dynare®, Stata®, Argis®, Stata®, SPSS®, Bloomberg®, LaTeX®.
