Mission Statement

The Research Department “Market Design” focuses on the analysis and optimisation of markets. Its aim is to improve the performance of existing markets by actively shaping market rules. To this end, it examines the peculiarities of each market and identifies their prevailing modes of action. To find a market mechanism that helps regulators to achieve their objectives in the best way possible, the Research Department uses theoretical, experimental and empirical methods.
