Opening up the black box of development. A two-day workshop

A GROWINPRO two-day workshop, on 29-30 June 2021, to explore determinants and sources of economic development

The GROWINPRO project co-organises a two-day workshop on the topic of determinants and sources of economic development. The event, held on 29-30 June 2021, is hosted by the Institute of Economics with the support of the Young Scholars Initiative.

The event aims at discussing established and new perspectives on the overall development process among young and senior scholars.

Over the course of three sessions, the workshop integrates perspectives from evolutionary and complexity economics and will provide cutting-edge contributions on core domains of analyses to interpret the dynamics of development.

The first session is dedicated to the analysis of capabilities accumulation and diversification, from firm, country, and regional perspectives, as determinant of prospect of growth. The second session targets processes of structural transformation with an emphasis on division of labour, employment and distributional dynamics as key features of development. The third session intersects firm and sectoral innovative efforts undertaken in pharmaceutical, telecommunication and green industries, highlighting heterogeneity in trajectories and the role of state-led policies.

A final roundtable hosts the contributions of leading scholars addressing contemporary challenges for innovation and industrial policies, particularly in the current pandemic phase.

GROWINPRO’s Giovanni Dosi and Maria Enrica Virgillito will participate in the workshop.
