The Rimini Centre for Economic Analysis (RCEA) and the Lazaridis Institute for the Management of Technology Enterprises invite papers to be considered for RCEA Growth, Innovation and Entrepreneurship Conference.

 

With the recent slowdown in economic growth, innovation and entrepreneurship have become two increasingly important areas of economic and management research. Growth results from the efforts of innovators and entrepreneurs, with new technologies replacing old ones. This is accelerated with the adoption of artificial intelligence, machine learning and robotics. The goal of this conference is to bring together leading researchers and policymakers to discuss and contribute to the understanding of issues related to economic growth, innovation and entrepreneurship. We welcome theoretical, empirical and policy-oriented papers in all areas of economics and finance that relate to the overarching theme of the conference.

 

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS: 

 

-  John Haltiwagner (University of Maryland, College Park, NBER and IZA)

-  Josh Lerner (Harvard Business School and NBER)
