Research groups in the areas of Economics and Business of the Universities of Vigo and A Coruña have achieved remarkable goals in the last times, not only at a regional and national level, but also internationally. This evidences the multiplicative effects arising from an increase in the critical mass and diversity of areas of specialty.

With the creation of ECOBAS, collaboration between research groups is being consolidated and unified to increase the academic, economic and social impact of R & D & i activities by producing more and better publications, and maximizing the attraction of talent and external resources, thus improving the sustainability of the groups.
