Moving the Frontier of the Macroeconomic Modelling of Research & Innovation
Research and Innovation (R&I) are acknowledged as key engines for long-term growth and social prosperity, as proven by established robust economic literature, including quantitative macro and micro-econometric studies and qualitative case studies.
However, the macroeconomic models used to support R&I policymaking seem to have fallen short in providing sound ex-ante estimates of macroeconomic and social impacts that reflect the empirical evidence.
The First European Conference on Macroeconomic Modelling of Research & Innovation will take a detailed look at macroeconomic models for policy making. It aims to contribute to the further development of the treatment and assessment of R&I investments and the role that public policies have in scientific, technological and economic development. The Conference aims to be the first of a series of events to discuss advances and best practice in the field.
