EMAEE 2015 Conference: Globalisation, Innovation and Economic Change

  • DATE / TIME:
    2015•06•01    09:00 - 2015•06•03    13:00

    The divide between “developed” and “developing” economies has remained wide and persistent, giving rise to development economics as a specialised field. Yet with economic interactions between nations rising strongly over the past decades, economics in a broad sense needs to be able to deal with the global environment in which all economic agents operate.

    To address this broad field of change in the global economic system, the UNU Maastricht Economic and Social Research Institute on Innovation and Technology (UNU-MERIT) will organize the 2015 European Meeting on Applied Evolutionary Economics (EMAEE): Globalisation, Innovation and Economic Change from 1–3 June 2015 in Maastricht, the Netherlands.

    The conference will target contributions from an evolutionary framework, at all levels of analysis (macro, meso, micro), and from all sub-fields of economics. The programme will give special emphasis to dynamic driving factors, such as innovation and institutional change, and intends to cover contributions on economies at a wide range of prosperity levels.
