Bocconi Research for Europe and the World Economy
The Bocconi Research for Europe and the World Economy aims to blend the international strength of the university’s academic research with our long tradition as a forum for public debate on pressing questions for policymakers and business leaders. At the service of society and communities of practice, Bocconi’s academic research can stimulate debate to support leaders and executives in the changing landscape of the global economy and society.
The program has a macro and micro component, both incorporating multi-disciplinary elements that blend economics and management with social, policy, and practice analysis. Two public events are held per year as part of the program. The macro and micro themes for the Spring and Fall 2017 editions are, respectively:
Globalization at a Turning Point? Challenges for Europe, coordinated by Guido Tabellini, with a public event on 13 March 2017 taking advantage of both the 60th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome and the 10th anniversary of the foundation of the European Research Council (ERC Week);
- Science and Open Innovation, coordinated by Alfonso Gambardella, focusing on data openness for verification and generation of new ideas, with a public event in or around September 2017.
