The GDS17 is a study group on the impact of economic policies established in Rome on December 2017 by some academics of Roma Tre and Sapienza.

The group is intended as a place for discussions and debate, involving professors, researchers, PhD students and experts in an informal and participative way.

The aim is to gather ideas and proposals and propose together a planning of initiatives (including researches, debates, projects.) to be promoted during the year.

For the period 2019-2022, the GDS17 is supported by  Erasmus + Jean Monnet Project
