Università Politecnica delle Marche
The Department of Economics and Social Sciences (DiSES) of the Università Politecnica delle Marche (UNIVPM) has a long-standing tradition in far reaching interdisciplinary research projects. Seminal works were published on the dualism of the Italian labour market and the factors responsible for the existence of a large black/grey sector, the structural tendency to macroeconomic instability in late developing European Countries and the regional distribution of economic activity and infrastructure, with particular emphasis on the birth and development of the Italian industrial districts for which the term NEC model was coined. DiSES has been in the forefront in designing courses aimed at sustaining the development of entrepreneurship and the small firm industrial structure typical of Central Italy.
