4th Jena Summer Academy on ”Innovation and Uncertainty”

25th July – 8th August 2010, Max Planck Institute of Economics, Jena and Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Germany

From July 25th until August 8th 2010, the 4th Jena Summer Academy on ”Innovation and Uncertainty” will be jointly hosted by the DFG Research Training Group “The Economics of Innovative Change” (GSBC-EIC) and the International Max Planck Research School on Adapting Behavior in a Fundamentally Uncertain World (IMPRS). The focus of this year’s edition will again lie on foundations of (innovative) behavior, entrepreneurship, the generation of innovations and their diffusion, the change of regional and sectoral structures caused by innovations, the role of the demand side in this context, as well as the political management of change. Just like in the last three years, the IMPRS Summer School will continue in the second and the third week of August to cover a number of specific topics related to how subjects behave under fundamental uncertainty.
