Winter 2023/24: Economics of Technology & Innovation

In this course, we will identify and analyze some of the most important issues of innovation policy, understand their relevance, explore their consequences, and introduce methods to analyze and tools to address them:

Why does society want innovation, and why would the government be interested in it? Is there enough innovation activity going on, and what can we do if it isn't? And how can we approach these and similar questions to begin with?

The course complements other offerings at the School of Management that deal with innovation from the management perspective.
