Conference on "Firm-dynamics, factors reallocation and organization of production in the context of COVID-19"
Jointly organised by Banque de France & CompNet
Paris, France - October 14. - 15, 2021
This year CompNet celebrates its 10th Annual Conference, together with Banque de France as co-host, which will (hopefully) take place in Paris.
The topic of the conference is "Firm-dynamics, factors reallocation and organization of production in the context of COVID-19"
The goal of this conference is to enhance academic and policy discussion on the effects of Covid on productivity, and to provide a forum for new policy-oriented research. Of great interest is the impact of the pandemic on productivity growth through within-firm dynamics, factors reallocation within and across sectors, the organization of production including through the internationalization of firms, and the role of policies. We seek to attract high-quality papers that include, but are not limited to the following topics in relation with the Covid-19 crisis:
-Innovation and knowledge diffusion
-Firm dynamics, entry and exit
-Production factors’ reallocation within and across sectors
-Government support to firms and misallocation
-Internationalization of firms, organization of production, the role of global value chains.
We welcome both empirical and theoretical contributions.
-Professor John Van Reenen (London School of Economics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and
-Professor Laura Alfaro (Harvard Business School)
