We plan to hold the Munich Summer Institute 2023 as an in-person event (no hybrid meeting) in Munich. The Munich Summer Institute will be preceded by the second MSI Ph.D. Workshop on 23 May 2023.
The Summer Institute will focus on three areas:
- Digitalization, Strategy and Organization
(chairs: Tobias Kretschmer and Christian Peukert),
- Innovation and Entrepreneurship
(chairs: Dietmar Harhoff, Joachim Henkel and Hanna Hottenrott), and
- Law & Economics of Intellectual Property, Innovation & Digitalization
(chair: Stefan Bechtold and Imke Reimers).
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 in a plenary or a poster session, as discussants, or as attendants. The Munich Summer Institute will feature three keynote lectures, 12 plenary presentations and a daily poster session (including a poster slam). The Munich Summer Institute focuses on quantitative empirical research.
The Munich Summer Institute will be held at the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities in the heart of Munich. Participation is by invitation only. The Munich Summer Institute will fund hotel expenses for all plenary speakers, poster presenters and invited discussants. It is expected that participants fund their own travel. The Munich Summer Institute may provide limited travel scholarships in case of financial hardship.
