Innovation & Entrepreneurship Seminar: Global Mobile Inventors

Ernest Miguelez (CNRS-GREThA, Université de Bordeaux)

Seminars currently take place in online format (see seminar page).

We present a comprehensive study on the dynamics of knowledge production and diffusion linked to global mobile inventors (GMIs). We find that GMIs are essential team members of the first few patents in technology classes new to the country of residence as compared to patents filed at later stages. We interpret these results as tangible evidence of GMIs facilitating the technology-specific diffusion of knowledge across nations. (Joint work with Dany Bahar, Brookings Institution, and Prithwiraj Choudhury, Harvard Business School)
