The aim of FEED is to make economics more relevant, less an excercise in mathematical technique for its own sake, and more able to deal with real-world problems. Since its foundation in 1990, and with the support of several of Europe's leading economists, FEED has funded research and education throughout Europe in broader and more relevant approaches to economics.
