The purpose of the association is to encourage cooperation and exchange of researchers and ideas among the participating research institutions in the general field of analytical and quantitative economics and econometrics.

Through this conference ASSET is gradually becoming a focal point in Southern Europe and the Mediterranean region for scientific exchanges in all areas of economics.
