I've seen two recent calls for what looked to be good upcoming events studying innovation in the developing world with an explicit interest in the use of microdata.
- Third Conference on Micro Evidence on Innovation in Developing Economies
Rio de Janeiro
May 10-12, 2009
Institute for Applied Economic Research, Brasilia, Brazil
UNU-MERIT, United Nations University
- Workshop on Firm-Level Data Analysis in Transition and Developing Economies
April 23-24, 2009
And while not a call for papers, this summer opportunity at the Barcelona School of Economics looks very much to have a similar focus and appeal.
