This stay will strengthen this partnership, studying both Swedish and Brazilian automobile markets. Furthermore, it is also expected farther interaction with other professors in the Industrial Organization field as well as researchers from the Research Group in Low Carbon Economics (Supported by USP).As for teaching, Prof. Huse will collaborate by teaching at the MSc.

With Professor Huse now at FEA-RP, this trend will be followed by teaching graduate courses in accordance to international trends in the field, focusing on research strategies based on Professor Huse s experience as a referee in world class journals in Economics.
