How Did Economic Research in Switzerland Develop since the Beginning 90s?
AbstractIn this paper we evaluate the economic research output of Swiss universities with the help of an incentive compatible method. We find that total research activity has increased considerably over the last 15 years. Looking at the individual universities, however, we observe strikingly different time patterns. In particular, we arrive at the result that the universities that were leading at the beginning of the 1990s have in the meantime been surpassed by other universities.
