Clément Malgouyres is a research associate at CNRS and an economist at CREST, a member of the Polytechnic Institute of Paris. He is also a research affiliate at the Institute of Public Policy. He defended his thesis in 2016 at the European University Institute.

His work encompasses labor economics, public economics, and international economics. He explores the interactions between public policies and corporate behavior, with a particular focus on business and entrepreneur taxation, as well as the role of companies in labor market dynamics

In a recent article (Bergeaud et al., 2023), Clément and his co-authors investigate the effects of public research on companies’ R&D efforts, comparing the relative effectiveness of various public innovation support policies. Other recent works focus on measuring the progressivity of the tax system, improving the measurement of income and business assets (Bach et al., 2023). Finally, he examines the effectiveness of incentive policies for greening the fleet of passenger vehicles through a bonus/malus system.
