La cooperación para la innovación es una modalidad de la innovación abierta que implica la participación activa de una empresa con otras compañías o entidades no comerciales en actividades de innovación, que no necesariamente tienen un enfoque comercial. Investigaciones previas han destacado varios beneficios de la cooperación para la innovación, especialmente en momentos de crisis económica.

Innovation, Income Inequalities and Public Policies

Innovation fosters economic growth and the performance of national systems. At the same time, though, recent literature shows that innovation is also a source of increasing income inequalities. Public policies face thus an important trade-off between efficiency and equity effects of innovation. What are the possible policy strategies to address this trade-off? The paper presents a model of innovation, income inequality and public policies.

Rethinkin university community partnerships contribution to community climate well-being: insights from Malawi

Jueves, 27 Julio 2023 - 11:00
Chimwemwe Phiri
University of the Free State

Chimwemwe will discuss opportunities for partnerships, priorities, and contributions of university-community partnerships for climate adaptation in Malawi. He will further share insights on how the human development approach, which foregrounds people-centeredness to development and focuses on expanding the richness of human life aside from the richness of the economy, can be applied to design university-community partnership models for the climate change approach in Malawi.

Cambridge Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction

Dr Schooling will discuss the opportunities and challenges presented by city-scale digitalisation, with a focus on three core aspects: governance, ethics and technology. She will describe the findings of the Digital Cities for Change programme, funded by the Ove Arup Foundation,  which evaluates both the existing structures and systems of city and infrastructure management, and investigates how digital tools can help better decision-making within these areas.

Walking the green line: government-sponsored R&D and clean technologies in the US

We examine whether government sponsored R&D induces the development of clean technologies with a high impact on subsequent technological development. The analysis uses information on USPTO patents granted between 2005 and 2015 and combines different methods to control for possible sorting of projects into public funding and for non-random (public) treatment. We also assess the distributional impact of government sponsored R&D.

Start-Up Coaching: What Does It Add To Societal Impact of Research?

This is an on-going study in which we explore inductively start-up coaches’ role in developing an entrepreneurial identity in researchers and having impact in research institutions. Our initial working hypothesis was that start-up coaches can play a relevant role in embedding an entrepreneurial mindset in researchers, or steering researchers towards an entrepreneurial horizon. Contrary to our working hypothesis, we found that start-up coaches’ strong commitment with neutrality prevents them from doing so.

A simple theory of economic development at the extensive industry margin

Joint Research Centre of the European Commission

We revisit the well-known fact that richer countries tend to produce a larger variety of goods and analyze economic development through (export) diversification. We show that countries are more likely to enter ‘nearby’ industries, i.e., industries that require fewer new occupations. To rationalize this finding, we develop a small open economy (SOE) model of economic development at the extensive industry margin. In our model, industries differ in their input requirements of non-tradeable occupations or tasks.

Las políticas de innovación orientadas a los retos sociales. Oportunidades y desafíos para el desarrollo regional

Las políticas de innovación se han orientado recientemente hacia un planteamiento más transformador que reconoce la centralidad de la innovación para la resolución de grandes retos sociales. La idea de misiones, en particular, ha cobrado mucho protagonismo en el diseño de políticas de innovación en la Unión Europea y también en muchos de sus estados miembros. Sin embargo, la idea de misiones o políticas transformadoras plantean interrogaciones sobre su implementación, las herramientas a utilizar y, en particular, su relevancia para las políticas de cohesión territorial.

Para resolver los problemas complejos que enfrenta la sociedad, la Universidad debe transformarse en un espacio de convergencia y cocreación que facilite la interacción entre los diversos actores sociales del territorio (sociedad civil, agencias gubernamentales, sector privado y academia).
