The Center for Law & Economics at ETH Zurich, the Chair for Technology and Innovation Management at TUM, the Chair for Economics of Innovation at TUM, the Institute for Strategy, Technology and Organization at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University of Munich and the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition will jointly organize the fifth Munich Summer Institute. The Institute will be held June 2-4, 2020 at the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities in Munich, Germany.
The Summer Institute will focus on three areas:
- Digitization, Strategy and Organization (chairs: Jörg Claussen and Tobias Kretschmer),
- Innovation and Entrepreneurship (chairs: Dietmar Harhoff, Joachim Henkel and Hanna Hottenrott),
- Law & Economics of Intellectual Property, Innovation & Digitization (chair: Stefan Bechtold)
The goal of the Munich Summer Institute is to stimulate a rigorous in-depth discussion of a select number of research papers and to strengthen the interdisciplinary international research community in these areas. Researchers in economics, law, management and related fields at all stages of their career (from Ph.D. students to full professors) may attend the Munich Summer Institute as presenters in a plenary or a poster session, as discussants or as attendants. The Munich Summer Institute will feature three keynote lectures, 18 plenary presentations and a daily poster session (including a poster slam). The Munich Summer Institute focuses on quantitative empirical research.
Participation is by invitation only. The organizers will fund travel and hotel expenses for all plenary speakers and hotel expenses for all poster presenters and invited discussants.
Paper submissions are due February 29, 2020.
More information is available on the Institute’s website.
