Kiel Institute Summer School

Innovation, Employment and Growth in the Global Economy

14 - 19 Jun 2015

The recent wave of innovation, in particular the ICT revolution, had a deep impact on countries worldwide. It also led to a reassessment of the effects which innovation has on our economies. How do innovations spread over space and time? How do they affect the global organisation of production? What are the implications for economic growth and employment? The aim of the summer school is to consider these issues and discuss appropriate policy responses.

The Summer School addresses graduate (MA or PhD) students and Post-docs with a strong academic record and a keen interest in policy issues, and staff members of policy institutions. The size of the group is limited to 25 participants. Participants will be hosted in the guest house of the Institute (“Haus Weltclub”).

The School is organised by the Kiel Institute in cooperation with the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology KIT.
