Theme :

In a period of deep industrial as well as financial crisis, innovation and firms restructuring is a major challenge to economics and social sciences. The aim of the conference is the identification of renewed frameworks and models as well as major propositions of structural, technological and institutional change to renew the toolbox in use in economics and management sciences. This broad stake can be taken theoretically, applied to different industries, regions or countries. Innovation Forum VI will pay a special attention to transition countries.

The conference provides a forum for discussion to scholars from a variety of disciplines ranging from industrial economics, innovation economics, economic geography, management science, legal studies, network theory and labour economics.

We invite both theoretical and empirical contributions in a wide range of topics such as:

  • corporate governance and performance,
  • business groups, restructuring and employment,
  • entrepreneurship and job creation,
  • production processes reorganization,
  • firms R&D strategies,
  • business organization and innovation,
  • environment as a driver of innovation,
  • geographical dimension of innovation,
  • industrial policies and transition,
  • science and technology policy,
  • entrepreneurship and local development.
