Using Eve Online for Economic research

Hi,

I am a very very very new user to Eve Online. I saw in one article that Eve online has been used for academic research. I would like to know if there is a way to experiment with Eve online as an economics simulator and how one may go about doing this if there are any users who have done this.

Kind Regards,
Lahiru

While not strictly economic research, I’m aware of someone who has run several collaborative studies on social psychology and memetic engineering for a joint research program of a Dutch University and an EU thinktank.

As for strictly economics research, in terms of econometrics or statistical analysis, I think there were some studies from a university in Iceland, but I think the best person to remember that would be CCP’s former own economist. Should be easy to find on LinkedIn

Ah thanks a lot for the info
