Call for Papers | Workshop Series on Migration, Globalization and the Knowledge Economy - 2nd edition!

We would like to remind you that the second edition of our Workshop Series on Migration, Globalization and the Knowledge Economy is soon approaching (May 16-17, 2019). This is part of our series of 4 workshop  we launched in 2018 on the topic of migration and its relationship with knowledge creation, diffusion, entrepreneurship, international business, innovation, and more. The 4 workshops are commonly organized by CEPII, EPFL, PSE, Utrecht, ICRIOS-Bocconi, and GREThA-Université de Bordeaux.

This second edition of the workshop si organized by Utrecht University, and the call for papers is now open (until March 31) and available here.

The workshop will consist of a 2-day plenary session with presentations and discussions, and two keynote speakers. The keynote speakers of the Utrecht workshop will be Ina Ganguli, from University of Massachusetts, and Ufuk Akcigit, from the University of Chicago.

We aim to attract both senior and junior scholars dealing with research topics such as the role of high-skilled migration in fostering innovation in receiving countries, the relationship between diversity and innovation, the role of skilled diasporas and return migrants in diffusing knowledge back to their home countries, the emerging role of MNC in shaping scientists’ and engineers’ migration flows as well as temporary migration and knowledge sharing, migration and innovation-based start-ups formation, regions and mobility, and so forth.

We'll be delighted if you can join us in Utrecht this May, as well as in the forthcoming cities.
