The GREQAM (research group in quantitative economics of Aix-Marseille), UMR 7316, created in 1996, changes its name. It is now called Aix-Marseille School of Economics. This evolution is a part of a line of excellence wanted by its founders.
Since 2011, the GREQAM carries the AMSE labex project (a project of excellence sponsored by the French government), to unite the economists of Aix-Marseille and to open ever more internationally.
