​CETRAD is both an old and a new research centre. CETRAD may be considered old because its prehistory is intimately linked with that of his host department, the Department of Economics, Sociology and Management (DESG) (see below “Six key moments in DESG’s history”). CETRAD may be thought of as new because it was only on the 2nd of May 2003 that the Department’s Assembly approved the founding of its own Research Centre.
