WICK#11 is a doctoral Workshop bringing together PhD students and young researchers in the field of Economics of Innovation, Complexity, and Knowledge.
The Workshop in Economics of Innovation, Complexity and Knowledge (WICK#11) for doctoral students and young researchers is jointly organized by the Vilfredo Pareto Doctoral Program in Economics - University of Turin, BRICK and the YSI Complexity Economics Working Group, and each year it attracts about 20 young researchers in Economics and Social Sciences from all over the world. This will be the 11th edition of the Workshop and it will take place on December 13–14, 2023 at the Collegio Carlo Alberto in Turin (Italy).
The aim of the workshop is to bring together young researchers from different disciplines and provide them an opportunity of discussion of both full and early works. Participants will also have the opportunity to receive helpful feedback from distinguished faculty members and external scholars.
The main topics of the Workshop are Economics of Knowledge and Innovation. The focus of the event is on Firm and Regional Innovation Strategies, Economics of Science, Economics of Networks, Environmental Economics and their policy implication.
The workshop will bring together methodologically heterogeneous works from Econometric contributions to Complex Network Analysis and computational methods. The plurality of the approaches and the broad pool of knowledge covered in WICK#11 is embodied by the members of our Scientific Committee who are active participants of the event, together with some other senior scholars, that come as discussants during the sessions of the workshop.
Participants may apply for a presentation session. The participants will have 30 minutes to present their work. A senior researcher is going to lead a 10 minutes discussion of the paper/research projects after the presentation. To apply for the workshop the submission of an extended abstract of the paper/research proposal is enough (maximum 1000 words), and the full paper will be required a couple of weeks before the Workshop.
As usual, the young researchers will also have the opportunity to attend lessons from renowned scholars in the field. This year we are glad to host as keynote speakers Prof. Tom Broekel (University of Stavanger Business School), Prof. Stan Metcalfe (University of Manchester) and Prof. Reinhilde Veugelers (KULevuen and Bruegel).
