COMPAMA is developing an emerging interdisciplinary area in the borderland between economics, optimization, psychology, machine learning and AI with the main purpose to understand the economic impact of decisions, made by both machines and human agents. The point of departure for this project is the internationally recognized research group at NTNU «Computational Economics and Optimization» which was participating in the SAMEVAL evaluation in 2017. COMPAMA seeks to develop a phd course program and exchange activities. This will be done in close collaboration between key competences and professors from each field, initiated through previous and ongoing RCN and EU projects. The SAMEVAL call is an appreciated prerequisite to further methodological strengthening of the area and enables increased international outreach and collaboration. International contacts are core contributors to our new national (and international) phd courses.This will be a mix of ongoing cooperation and new relationships made possible by COMPAMA. These are critical in the collaboration needed for the methodological and conceptual enhancement of the research area that is the focal point of COMPAMA.
