Funding Support

Most of the work producing the content of our curriculum is provided at no cost by our contributing economists. The Institute for New Economic Thinking provided start-up and first-stage funding for the creation of the ebook The Economy, and to make free online access possible. The Friends Provident Foundation funds the creation of teaching and learning materials and our efforts to widen access to the CORE approach to economics education. Azim Premji University, Bangalore, University College London and Sciences Po, Paris have given additional financial support. We thank the International Economic Association, Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS), the Santa Fe Institute and the University of Chile for supporting CORE Project workshops.

The CORE Project is based at University College London.

Students and teachers at the following institutions participated in the initial testing of the course materials:

University College London; Sciences Po (Paris); University of Massachusetts Boston; University of Sydney; Azim Premji University (Bangalore); University of Bristol; University of Chile; Dartmouth College; School of Public Policy, Central European University (Budapest); University of Siena; Lahore University of Management Sciences; Birkbeck, University of London; King’s College London.
