Last week, the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) held its semi-annual meeting of the Innovation Policy and the Economy working group. While I wasn't in attendance, I've heard from several who were that the session was of good quality. These meetings are held in DC each year to try to engage the policy audience and the research community on important topics in the area. Among this year's papers are some new work by Paula Stephan on immigration and innovation
, as well as Marie and Gerry Thursby which looks at the effects of Bayh-Dole on research
. Read all the papers.
