About this event

The economics of innovation touches all fields of economics. Innovation is a key force in economic growth, firm dynamics, inequality, and labor market outcomes. It interfaces with public finance, international trade, the economics of organizations, and urban economics. At the same time, the economics of innovation is rarely taught as a separate field course within economics departments, making it difficult for students to engage the foundational ideas, institutions, empirical evidence, and frontier questions in this critical sphere. This Ph.D. boot camp will provide an on-ramp for scholars who want to do research in the economics of innovation or on issues in other sub-fields of economics that touch on innovation.

Participants are expected to adhere to the Events Code of Conduct.

This event will take place Off Campus.
