In fourteen years of existence, the European School of New Institutional Economic (ESNIE) has become one of the most prominent events in research on institutional and organizational economics. The school has continually built up a dense and wide network of researchers and students interested in this dynamic field. In 2015, in order to adapt to the evolution of the discipline, ESNIE became the Institutional and Organizational Economics Academy (IOEA).
