Munich Summer Institute 2016

Bayerische Akademie der Wissenschaften, München

From June 20 to June 22, 2016, 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 first Munich Summer Institute (MSI 2016).

The Munich Summer Institute 2016 will focus on three areas:

  • Digitization, Strategy and Organization (June 20, 2016) (chairs: Tobias Kretschmer and Jörg Claussen)
  • Innovation and Entrepreneurship (June 21, 2016) (chair: Dietmar Harhoff)
  • Law & Economics of Innovation (June 22, 2016) (chair: Stefan Bechtold)

The goal of the Munich 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 Munich Summer Institute as presenters, discussants or attendants.

The Munich Summer Institute will feature keynote lecturers (by Chris Forman (Georgia Tech), Pamela Samuelson (UC Berkeley) and Rosemary Ziedonis (Boston University)), up to 19 plenary presentations (each with a discussant), as well as poster sessions (including a poster slam).

The Munich Summer Institute will be held at the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities in the heart of Munich. The organizers will fund travel and Hotel expenses for all plenary Speakers and hotel expenses for all poster presenters.

Any questions concerning the Munich Summer Institute should be directed to Stefan Bechtold, Dietmar Harhoff or Tobias Kretschmer.
