AQR-IREA will host the Workshop on Innovation and Regional Economic Performance on October 18th-19th 2012 in Barcelona.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together cutting-edge research papers on innovation and knowledge diffusion, and their linkages with regional economic performance. Particular attention will be paid to papers dealing with the mechanisms and actors of innovation and knowledge diffusion (knowledge spillovers, networks, skilled labour mobility, university-industry linkages).
Karen Maguire (Regional Innovation Unit, OECD)
Philip McCann (University of Groningen)

The accepted papers (around 8) will be presented in plenary sessions that will complement the two keynote speakers’ presentations. Papers should be sent in pdf format to email@example.com before June 11th, 2012. Detailed abstracts will also be considered, but full papers will be favoured. Travel and accommodation costs for successful papers will be covered by the organisers.
