RCEA Growth, Innovation and Entrepreneurship Conference

Keynote speakers

John Haltiwanger (University of Maryland) & Josh Lerner (Harvard Business School)

With recent slowdown in economic growth, innovation and entrepreneurship became one of the leading areas of economic and management research. Growth results from the effort of innovative entrepreneurs, with new technologies replacing old ones. This trend is expected to accelerate with adoption of artificial intelligence, robotics and machine learning. The goal of the conference is to bring together leading researchers and policymakers to discuss and contribute to the understanding of issues related to economic growth, innovation and entrepreneurship. We welcome theoretical, empirical and policy – oriented papers in all areas of economics and finance related to the overarching theme of the conference.
