Economics of Innovation

The purpose of the group is to gather young scholars interested or working in innovation related issues. The group provides a platform to create professional and academic networks for young scholars to share and promote their work.

“Innovation is far too important to be left to scientists and technologists. It is also far too important to be left to economists or social scientists” (Freeman, 1974).

The group focuses, in addition to some traditional aspects of innovation economics (e.g the financing of innovation, innovation & competition, innovation & industry dynamics and the relationship between innovation, economic growth and economic development), on innovation in history of economic thought and innovation seen through the lens of neighboring social sciences such as history and sociology. Because of our holistic approach to innovation, the working group aims also at creating synergies inside the YSI platform.

Since its creation in 2015, the group has managed events, including scholars like William Lazonick and Mariana Mazzucato.
