The main UECE goals are:
· Promoting research on dynamical systems and on complexity, with an emphasis on economic applications, and also on other economic fields, such as game theory and macroeconomics;
· Developing new statistical methods applied to economics;
· Studying the consequences of dynamic, non-linear and complex systems in what concerns economic analysis and forecasting;
· Organizing seminars, conferences and other events to disseminate scientific results;
· Participating in international research networks and promoting participation of researchers in international congresses and conferences;
· Promoting and publishing papers, working papers and other documents to stimulate research in these recent economic theory areas.
