The World Economy Research Institute at the Warsaw School of Economics (Poland) is pleased to announce its 11th Annual Conference on competitiveness and innovation.
In today’s world, sustainable competitiveness is no longer built on such staple elements as economies of scale, but rather on curve-jumping and curve-defining innovations. Therefore, the recognition of the entire process of innovation (from investment to commercialization and implementation) by policy makers is of key importance. That is because, without an appropriate institutional environment, innovations will not emerge and sustainable competitiveness will not be achieved. It is through an appropriate set of institutional changes that economies will be able to capitalize on their available resources as inputs in the creation of innovation outputs leading to a strong, long-term competitive advantage.
Therefore, the following question arises: What kinds of institutional changes are needed, alongside innovation, to help build a competitive advantage in today’s world? This year’s Conference will seek to answer this question.
• to share research results on institutional change and its role in shaping competitiveness
• to discuss the role of innovation as a building block of competitive advantage and as a path to faster economic growth;
• to share theoretical, empirical and policy research results on various innovation and competitiveness issues;
• to discuss the implications of research findings for policy design and formulate recommendations for Polish and EU innovation policies.
Selected papers will be published in the World Economy Research Institute’s Working Paper series.
