Welcome to the Munich Summer Institute
June 4 - 6, 2018
The Summer Institute will focus on three areas:
- Digitization, Strategy and Organization (chairs: Jörg Claussen and Tobias Kretschmer),
- Innovation and Entrepreneurship (chairs: Dietmar Harhoff and Joachim Henkel), and
- Law & Economics of Intellectual Property and Innovation (chair: Stefan Bechtold).
The goal of the Munich Summer Institute is to stimulate a rigorous in-depth discussion of a select number of research papers and to strengthen the interdisciplinary international research community in these areas. Researchers in economics, law, management and related fields at all stages of their career (from Ph.D. students to full professors) may attend the Munich Summer Institute as presenters in a plenary or a poster session, as discussants or as attendants. The Munich Summer Institute will feature three keynote lectures, 18 plenary presentations and a daily poster session (including a poster slam). Paper presentations will be grouped by topics, not discipline or method. The Munich Summer Institute will be held at the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities in the heart of Munich. Participation is by invitation only. The organizers will fund travel and hotel expenses for all plenary speakers and hotel expenses for all poster presenters and invited discussants.
