The European Association for Research in Industrial Economics (EARIE), a non-profit international scientific association, was founded in 1974 under the auspices of the International Institute of Management (IIM), following an initiative undertaken by the industrial economist, Frederic M. Scherer, and his then junior colleague, Jürgen Müller. The aim of the Association is to provide a professional society for academics and practitioners engaged in the field of Industrial Economics.

Membership of EARIE is open to all academics, practitioners, and PhD students who are interested in current research and information covering the broad spectrum of industrial economics (also known as industrial organization)

The main activity of EARIE is its annual conference, held at the end of August.
