KITeS's mission to understand the relationship between innovation, firms competitiveness and economic growth in the global economy. KITeS research focuses on three key areas: applied economics, technology management and trade.
KITeS is an inter-departmental research center, integrating researchers from Economics, Management and Institutional Analysis. It builds upon two pre-existing research centers (CESPRI and CRITOM) which have recently merged to forge one of the largest and most visibile European groups in the innovation studies area.
Starting from November 2009, following the closure of ISESAO, Kites activities have also concerned issues regarding East Asia, and economic and politological topics in particular.
