Call for Papers – 16th Workshop on the Organisation, Economics and Policy of Scientific Research

WOEPSR is coming back to Munich! After the 14th workshop of the series in 2020, the “16th Workshop on the Organization, Economics and Policy of Scientific Research”, jointly organized with TUM, will again take place at the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition on 13 and 14 April 2023. Researchers who would like to present a paper are invited to submit it online by 15 January 2023.

The workshop was originally launched in Turin, but is now also held at other major research locations such as the Centre for Research on Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the University of Bath (2018), GREThA at the Université de Bordeaux-CNRS (2019), and KU Leuven (2022).

The organisers aim to attract contributions from both junior and senior scholars on topics related to the organisation, economics and policy of scientific research. A minimum number of slots are reserved for junior researchers (PhD students or postdoc scholars who obtained their PhD in 2020 or later).

Contributions are invited on (but not limited to) one or more of the following topics:

  • Organisation of research activities in universities, PROs and private R&D labs
  • The evaluation of science policy
  • Science in the private sector and spillovers from scientific research
  • Role of individual researcher characteristics in scientific research
  • Science research networks and collaboration
  • Scientific careers and mobility

Please submit previously unpublished papers or extended abstracts (min 3 pages) by 15 January 2023.
We strive to notify authors by 27 February 2023.
