Economics of Science and Innovation

The Barcelona GSE Summer Forum Workshop on Economics of Science and Innovation will run for 2 days and will take place on June 7-8, 2021 in Barcelona (or online, if an in-person event is not possible).

The contribution of innovation and entrepreneurship to economic prosperity has grown exponentially in recent years with the shift of development economies towards knowledge-based societies. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Funding new ideas
  • Entrepreneurial finance
  • Venture capital
  • Funding schemes and panel evaluation
  • Knowledge and technology transfer
  • Academic networks and team work

Covid safety considerations

Our current plan is to hold this workshop in person in Barcelona. In the event that in-person activities are not possible, this workshop will be moved online.

The Summer Forum organizers are closely monitoring COVID-19 health and safety regulations. Any changes to the workshop format will be communicated in a timely manner. Thank you for your understanding! We look forward to receiving your paper submission.
