Over the past 40 years, the Fraser has established an international reputation in combining academic excellence with economic and public policy relevance.
Our independent, dispassionate approach to policy-relevant economic research has remained the hallmark of the Fraser ever since.
The Fraser retains a vibrant research environment with a long tradition of publishing in leading research.
Over the last five years, the Institute has raised over £3 million in support of its work – including £1 million from the Economic and Social Research Council, over £1 million from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and over £1 million from other sources, including the EU and Scottish Government. Fraser staff have many years of experience of multidisciplinary research, including with engineering as well as across the full range of the social sciences.
