My friend Guido Buenstorf is organizing the 6th European Meeting for Applied Evolutionary Economics (EMAEE) in Jena, Germany. The conference targets specifically the younger researcher in this field and is traditionally very successful.
EMAEE is an international conference focusing on young researchers (PhD students and post-docs). EMAEE provides a unique opportunity to discuss the latest insights and methods in applied evolutionary economics and innovation studies with top international scholars.
Evolutionary economics is a leading paradigm for research into innovation, organizations, and industrial dynamics. Beyond these fields, evolutionary economics provides a general approach to the study of emergent novelty and dynamic change in the economy. Plenary speakers at EMAEE 2009 will explore commonalities with the neighboring fields and disciplines – in particular behavioral economics, organization and management science, and historiography.
The conference will welcome among others Steven Klepper, Olav Sorenson, Sid Winter and Francesco Lissoni as keynote speakers. Deadline for abstracts is October, 31st, 2008. Check out the website for further details.
