The Maastricht Economic and Social Research and Training Centre on Innovation and Technology (UNU-MERIT, United Nations University), the Inter-American Development Bank, the CINVE (Centro de Investigaciones Económicas, Uruguay), the Facultad de Ciencias Económicas y Administración, Universidad de la República and the Facultad de Administración y Ciencias Sociales, Universidad ORT Uruguay, announce that the 10th Conference on Micro Evidence on Innovation and DEvelopment (MEIDE) will be held on November 16-17, 2017 in Montevideo, Uruguay. The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers from around the world to discuss various aspects of innovation and its relation to economic development. Priority will be given to empirical papers, but there is also room for methodological and theoretical papers, as well as for case studies, as long as they address the issue of innovation and development. Innovation is to be understood broadly as any kind of innovation in what firms, households, communities and governments do, or in the way they operate. It also includes knowledge creation, diffusion, measurement and evaluation issues. Development comprises growth but also welfare, poverty alleviation, environmental concerns and fairness in the distribution of wealth/income. Since last year, we have enlarged the scope of the conference to include papers based on macro or industry data. This year a few sessions will be devoted to the theme “Obstacles to Innovation” in collaboration with a project lead by the Inter-American Development Bank and implemented with Red Sur. Examples of topics that could be covered: Innovation, productivity and firm performance Innovation, education, health, human capital, and social capital Innovation in universities and public institutions Technology adoption and diffusion Innovation and employment Innovation and internationalization Entrepreneurship and innovation Innovation and the role of financial institutions Financial innovations Innovation and international trade International comparisons of innovation performance Effectiveness of innovation policies Innovation metrics Non-technological innovation Demand-led innovations and innovation policies Innovation in the services sector Innovation in the natural resources sector Sponsors: UNU-MERIT, United Nations University Centro de Investigaciones Económicas, Uruguay (CINVE) Facultad de Ciencias Económicas y Administración, Universidad de la República Facultad de Administración y Ciencias Sociales, Universidad ORT Uruguay Inter-American Development Bank Red Sudamericana de Economía Aplicada (Red Sur) Scientific committee: Diego Aboal (CINVE, Universidad ORT Uruguay and FCEA, Universidad de la República) Théophile Azomahou (UNU-MERIT and Maastricht University) Carlos Bianchi (IECON, FCEA, Universidad de la República) Gustavo Crespi (Inter-American Development Bank) Fred Gault (UNU-MERIT and Tschwane University) Micheline Goedhuys (UNU-MERIT) Leonid Gokhberg (National Research University – Higher School of Economics) Norbert Janz (UNU-MERIT and Applied University Aachen) Andrés López (Red Sudamericana de Economía Aplicada, Universidad de Buenos Aires) Jacques Mairesse (UNU-MERIT, Maastricht University, ENSAE) Pierre Mohnen (UNU-MERIT and Maastricht University) Caroline Paunov (OECD) Vitaliy Roud (National Research University – Higher School of Economics) Ezequiel Tacsir (CINVE, UNU-MERIT and Ministry of Production, Argentina) Organising Committee: Diego Aboal (CINVE, Universidad ORT Uruguay and FCEA, Universidad de la República), Carlos Bianchi (IECON, FCEA, Universidad de la República), Gustavo Crespi (Inter-American Development Bank), Pierre Mohnen (UNU-MERIT and Maastricht University), Sergio Palomeque (FCEyA, Universidad de la República), Martín Pereyra (CINVE and Universidad ORT Uruguay), Flavia Rovira (CINVE).

Middle Powers Can Lead in Trump Era

Middle Powers Can Lead in Trump Era. How countries like Argentina and Canada can serve as global trade leaders amid clash of great powers Autores: OONAGH FITZGERALD HECTOR TORRES El triunfo electoral de Donald Trump basado en la premisa “Making America Great Again” representa un conjunto de desafíos al sistema del comercio internacional basado en la cooperación y las normas. Sin embargo, esos desafíos también configuran nuevas oportunidades para aquellos países que desean asumir un rol como defensores y promotores del imperio de la ley a nivel global. En ese contexto, los líderes de dos potencias medianas tendrán una oportunidad única en el año 2018 para dar forma a la agenda económica internacional: el presidente de Argentina Mauricio Macri quien, en el contexto del G20, recibirá a los líderes mundiales en Buenos Aires; y el Primer Ministro de Canadá Justin Trudeau, quien recibirá a los líderes del G7.
