The Economic Theory and Experiments Unit is jointly operated by the Department of Economics and the Melbourne Business School at the University of Melbourne.
The objectives of the Unit are:
- to promote research of the highest standard in all areas of economic theory
- to be a focus within Australia for research in economic theory
- to facilitate both national and international affiliations and research linkages
- to facilitate the training of research students, and the exchange of doctoral and postdoctoral students
- to be a focus for external research funding
- to run conferences, workshops and advanced short courses for research students
- to publish occasional monographs and proceedings.
The Department of Economics at the University of Melbourne provides office space, and day to day administrative support for the program and the Director. Otherwise the Unit is entirely self funded, through external funds brought in by its members, and it has operated without any direct financial support from the University. The Unit acknowledges the assistance of the Australian Research Council, through its Discovery and Linkage Programs, for support to research projects undertaken within the Unit, and for support to its academic programs.
Membership in the Unit is open to any member of the Department of Economics (or any other Department of the University of Melbourne or of the Melbourne Business School) with a research interest in Economic Theory. Associate membership is open to members of other Universities or research institutions.
The Director of the Unit is appointed, from among its members, by the Head of the Department of Economics after consultation with the Advisory Board. The Director may be assisted by one or more Associate Directors, and will report to an Advisory Board. The Advisory Board will consist of at least two members of the University of Melbourne, one member of another Australian University, and at least four international members.
The Unit will publish an annual report, and will be reviewed biennially by the Head of the Department of Economics at the University of Melbourne. The Advisory Board will meet at least annually and make a report to the Head of the Department of Economics. It may meet electronically or by teleconference.

The ETEU encourages a wide range of research, from pure theory through to applied theory and experimental economics. Since one of the objectives of the Unit is to encourage collaboration between theorists and researchers with complementary skills, we have not attempted in this bibliography to distinguish between pure theory and applied theory.
The following bibliography consists of published papers listed in Econlit with the affiliation University of Melbourne, where at least one of the authors is an EEUC associate.
