Loughborough University’s School of Business and Economics and the Centre for Productivity and Performance are hosting EWEPA XVI in June 2019, following on from a very successful and productive EWEPA XV in 2017.

Loughborough University has a well-established reputation in the Efficiency and Productivity Analysis community, with experts teaching and conducting research in EPA and DEA across a diverse set of agendas and topics.

The Centre for Productivity and Performance (CPP) at the School of Business and Economics (SBE), Loughborough University, was launched in 2016 and is co-directed by Professor Victor Podinovski and Professor David Saal.

The CPP comprises a multidisciplinary team of researchers operating at the methodological interface between economics, management science and operational research, engaging in research aimed at measuring, understanding, incentivising and improving the productivity and performance of firms, public services, industries, and also understanding the impact of both regulation and market interactions on firm and industry performance.

Members are active in research projects that span across energy pricing, storage and consumption; stochastic frontier analysis; the productivity puzzle; organisational performance; competition and regulation; and much more. CPP research also acknowledges the competing social, environmental, financial and economic objectives involved in performance assessment, and is therefore of practical relevance to managers and policy makers.
