CfP: Workshop on Migration, Globalization and the Knowledge Economy – 3rd edition!

Dear friends and colleagues,

Sorry for multiple posting!

We would like to announce the CALL FOR PAPERS of the third edition of our Workshop Series on Migration, Globalization and the Knowledge Economy, to be held in Milan (Italy), on May 18-19/2020. This is part of our series of 5 workshop  we launched in 2018 on the topic of migration and its relationship with knowledge creation, diffusion, entrepreneurship, international business, innovation, and more. The 5 workshops are commonly organized by CEPII, EPFL, PSE, Utrecht, ICRIOS-Bocconi, GSSI, IPP-CSIC, and GREThA-Université de Bordeaux.

This third edition of the workshop si organized by Bocconi University, at the Invernizzi center for Research on innovation, organization, strategy and entrepreneurship (ICRIOS) and the call for papers is now open (until January 7, 2020) and available here and in attached pdf.

The workshop will consist of a 2-day plenary session with presentations and discussions, and two keynote speakers. The keynote speakers of the Milan workshop will be Megan MacGarvie, from Boston University, and Raj Choudhury, from Harvard Business School.

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 Milan next May, as well as in the forthcoming cities.

Thank you for sharing this call among your network, and hope to see you soon!

All the best,
