Welcome to ate!

ATE is an Asia-Pacific network centering around New Zealand and Australia aimed at fostering applied microeconomic theory with significant real-world relevance and implications, built on solid foundations from economic theory. ATE connects Trans-Tasman scholars to other researchers from Europe, North and South America, and Asia.

ATE's activities include, but are not limited to, generating opportunities for further interaction and exchange among its members, for attracting visitors, for engaging in joint research supervision, for organizing workshops and guest lectures, with the goal of facilitating the advancement and dissemination of findings from research in applied microeconomic theory.

ATE was initiated in New Zealand in September 2012 and was hosted at Massey University (2012-2016) but has now migrated to to a new server.
