Athens University of Economics and Business
Athens University of Economics and Business (AUEB) is a dynamic institution of higher education in Greece, founded in 1920. The group “Services, Technologies and Economics” (STEcon) comprises members with multidisciplinary scientific expertise and specializes in the combination of technology and economics. We investigate, develop, and evaluate: economic models and business plans, economic mechanisms (such as pricing schemes, SLAs, incentives and auctions) and other incentives-based mechanisms (such as performance differentiation, gamification, and reputation) for demand side management in smart energy grids and for the allocation, management and trading of network, cloud, CDN and IoT services and resources. Emphasis is placed on the theoretical and simulative evaluation of such mechanisms, and on the technologies and data necessary for enabling their implementation in real systems.
