The Lab of Economics of Culture (LEC) was established within the National Research University Higher School of Economics in St. Petersburg in 2011.

Main research projects of the LEC are focused on creative potential of cultural tourism, impacts of cultural events on cities’ development, role of creative industries in the contemporary socio-economic development, and role of gastronomic brands in tourist destination promotion. Please find more about our research projects here.

The Lab is made up of faculty, graduate students and researchers from management, economics and sociology departments of the HSE in St. Petersburg. The Lab is closely connected to the master's programme "Experience Economy: Hospitality and Tourism Management". Students of the programme actively participate in the Lab's projects developing and implementing their own research ideas guided by research fellows.
