The Seasonal School programme on "Economics of Innovation and Technological Change" addresses both the theoretical and the empirical underpinnings of the economics of innovation and technical change, as well as recent debates at the frontier of the field. The topics covered include: technological paradigms and trajectories, innovation and firm strategies, sectoral patterns of innovation, analysis of patent data, innovation and economic growth, innovation and competitiveness, innovation and intellectual property rights. The programme also offers an overview of statistical methods and techniques aimed at analysing relevant empirical data for innovation studies. Students will gain frameworks and tools to understand key-issues in this field: how do we measure innovation? How do firms exploit innovation in different sectors? What is the connection between intellectual property rights regimes and innovation? Which are the most effective tools to foster innovation in different contexts?
Students will engage with and will learn from full-time professors from the Sant’Anna Institute of Economics through a mix of lecture-based and laboratory classes.
