Gianluca Orsatti

Università di Torino

I am a Ph.D. candidate in Economics of Innovation, Complexity and Knowledge at the University of Turin since November 2014. In 2014, I hold a M.A. in Economics and Complexity at the Collegio Carlo Alberto, Moncalieri, Turin. In 2013, I hold a M.Sc. in Environmental Economics at the University of Roma TRE, Rome.
My main research interests are in the field of the economics of environmental innovation. Precisely, I am mainly interested in investigating the drivers leading to the generation of new eco-inventions from several perspectives: public policies (mainly supply oriented); inventors’ team knowledge peculiarities; academic discoveries and scientific publications; labor composition and skills combinations.
At the same time, I am also interested in studying the effects of inventors’ mobility on innovation productivity and quality and in analyzing the effects of patent strategic transfer and enforcement on the evolution of technological trajectories.
I am spending 6 months visiting INGENIO under the supervision of Davide Consoli, from Abril to September 2017.
