Economic Fitness and Complexity Summer School

A five-day Economic Fitness and Complexity Summer School, jointly organised by UNU-MERIT and the Enrico Fermi Research Centre.

Time
- Europe/Amsterdam

If you are a postgraduate student, early-career researcher, or policy practitioner and you would like to learn about economic complexity, join us this July for the second edition of our five-day Economic Fitness and Complexity Summer School, jointly organised by UNU-MERIT and the Enrico Fermi Research Centre.

In the first part of the programme, participants will be offered training on the main tools of the fitness toolbox, such as the economic fitness and complexity algorithm, measures of relatedness, and network inference using random graphs and multilayer networks. In the second part, the school will feature 23 speakers presenting cutting-edge, frontier contributions from the fitness and complexity literature, covering topics such as economic development, technological and scientific production, sustainability, labour markets, and industrial policy.

We will ask and discuss: 

  • To what extent can economic complexity improve political decision-making? 
  • Can EFC provide indicators that can be used for the industrial planning of countries and regions?
  • What are the core elements of the innovation process and what are the early warnings of different activities of the innovation system?
  • How can EFC help for policy/project evaluations?
  • Can regions identify new opportunities for economic growth and diversification?
  • Can EFC methods help in mapping new green opportunities?
