Founded in 2003, CEGE – Research Centre in Management and Economics - is the research centre that frames the academic research conducted within the Católica Porto Business School of Universidade Católica Portuguesa.

Its mission is to contribute to the advancement of knowledge in economics and management, promoting a culture of excellence in research and disseminating its research results to the scientific community and society in general.

The research carried out within CEGE covers the main scientific areas related to economics and management, divided by the following three research areas:


CEGE is funded by FCT – Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia - through the Strategic Projects PEst-OE/EGE/UI0731/2013 and PEst-OE/EGE/UI0731/2016.

Other sources of financing include specific project funding by FCT as well as resources from Católica Porto Business School.


CEGE’s bylaws are available here.

Research Areas

Markets and Policy

Markets and policy are inherently interconnected: government policies influence private agents’ decisions (e.g., consumption, investment, financial decisions), which in turn also help shape government policies. Business cycles significantly influence the public awareness of this interconnection, and the recent financial crisis has been a clear example both of how it operates, but also of its potentially harmful economic and social consequences. This complex and intricate relationship extends well beyond the microeconomic level (individual decisions) to the macroeconomic level (aggregate decisions), having consequences for economies and societies.

The research area in markets and policy conducts theoretical and evidence-based research on the institutional and organizational framework in which individual decisions of consumption and/or investment take place, while also analysing their overall impact in economic activity. When studying these decisions, the group focuses not only on their behavioural determinants, but also on their financial dimension. In so doing, the group also considers the regulatory and/or legal framework in which these activities take place in various sectors, taking also into account the influence of government, through the study of the determinants of government efficiency and the evaluation of macroeconomic policies. This is inherently an interdisciplinary research area, where researchers using quantitative, qualitative, experimental and mixed-method approaches can collaborate to understand the factors that sustain the creation, the development and the evaluation of markets and policy.

Service management and performance

A service is an activity or series of activities of more or less intangible nature that are provided as solutions to customer needs and that normally take place in interactions between the customer and the service provider(s). Services now account for over 70% of the GDP of developed economies, including sectors such as retail, healthcare, banking, insurance, transportation, telecommunications, among others. Despite their importance, services still lag behind in terms of efficiency, quality and innovation, when compared to manufacturing activities. Services have specific traits that require mainstream management theories and practices to be adapted or even re-invented to produce results. In recognition of this, in the last 20 years new theoretical approaches have emerged in Management areas such as Marketing (e.g. the Service Dominant Logic), Operations (e.g. the Unified Services Theory), Organization Theory (e.g. Service Networks) or Information Systems (e.g. Service Science) that have re-shaped our understanding of services. These developments gave rise to the field of Service Management, which is intrinsically interdisciplinary.

The Service Management and Performance group in CEGE integrates multiple subject areas – namely Operations, Marketing, Organization Theory and Information Systems - to conduct leading-edge, innovative research that has the potential to significantly advance the field of Service Management, theoretically and/or practically. The group emphasizes empirically-based modes of enquiry covering diverse research methodologies, including surveys, case-studies, quantitative modeling, among others. Topic areas include the management of technology-enabled services, benchmarking and efficiency analysis, service networks and the servitization of manufacturing.

Sustainability and ethics

Sustainability has become a central question in contemporary society, given the various challenges faced by humanity in various dimensions such as the social, economic, health and environmental. These challenges raise crucial ethical questions for human decisions, leadership in organizations, human development and social welfare, which include the problems raised by climate change, poverty, inequality, migration, education and health. To address these problems, there is a need for a rigorous description of their nature, and a normative framework that can provide guidance to the search of solutions.

The research area in sustainability and ethics focuses on ethical behavior both from a normative and a descriptive perspective, as well as on the impact of human behavior on sustainability in its various dimensions that foster human dignity, such as the social, economic, health and environmental. The more theoretical research conducted within the research group focuses on the development of human competences and capabilities within an ethical decision making framework, taking into account its influence in leadership, in human relationships and their impact on the human well-being and the environment . The more applied research conducted within the research group pays particular attention to organizations within a person centered approach in order to contribute for a (more) humanistic, virtuous and effective management of organizations, including those operating in the social economy and in the health sector.

Working Papers

Católica Porto Business School maintains two working paper series:


Internal conference

Every semester, the School organises an internal conference for faculty. This conference is an opportunity to share research results and involve undergraduate and graduate students in ongoing research projects. As such, one of its objectives is to allow for the creation of research networks, which are essential in order to foster scientific research.

Here you will find the papers presented in the previous 12 conferences. The next (13th) conference will take place in June 2018.
