Munich Summer Institute
From May 29 to 31, 2017, the Center for Law & Economics at ETH Zurich, 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 second Munich Summer Institute 2017.
The Summer Institute will focus on three areas:
- Digitization, Strategy and Organization (chairs: Tobias Kretschmer and Jörg Claussen),
- Innovation and Entrepreneurship (chair: Dietmar Harhoff),
- Law & Economics of Intellectual Property and Innovation (chair: Stefan Bechtold).
The goal of the 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 Summer Institute as presenter in a plenary or a poster session, as discussant or as attendant. The Summer Institute will feature three keynote lecture, 18 plenary presentations and a daily poster session (including a poster slam). Paper presentations will be grouped by topics, not discipline or method.
The Summer Institute will be held at the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities and the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition in Munich. 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.
