Crisis, innovation and transition - call for papers
In a period of deep industrial as well as financial crisis, innovation and firms restructuring is a major challenge to economics and social sciences. Forum VI Innovation 2014, jointly organised by EconomiX (CNRS-University of Paris Ouest, Nanterre, La Défense), the Research Network on Innovation, and the Centre d'Etudes de l'Emploi, provides a forum for discussion to scholars from a variety of disciplines ranging from industrial economics, innovation economics, economic geography, management science, legal studies, network theory and labour economics. Proposals of round-tables or special sessions or tracks are also highly expected.
The aim of the conference is the identification of renewed frameworks and models as well as major propositions of structural, technological and institutional change to renew the toolbox in use in economics and management sciences. This broad stake can be taken theoretically, applied to different industries, regions or countries. Innovation Forum VI will pay a special attention to Maghreb countries as representative of transition countries.
