Prof. Dr. Jacques Mairesse

Professorial fellow

Research group(s):
1. The Economics of Knowledge and Innovation

Jacques Mairesse's  research is applied and belongs to econometrics in the proper sense that it tries to connect empirical and theoretical analysis with particular attention to data and to methods. It centres in the field of production economics broadly understood, ranging from questions of measurement of tangible and intangible capital and assessment of performance, and from problems of implementation of panel data econometrics, to investigations of firm behaviours and productivity and technical change issues.

Mairesse has been engaged in many comparative studies, using firm micro data for France and the US or other countries, in particular to analyse various forms of investment in equipment, information and communication technology (ICT), organisational practices, R&D and innovation and their effects on productivity. His current topics of interest are in the economics of science and knowledge, with specific emphasis on performance evaluation at various levels of analysis (individual employee or scientist, firm or laboratory, industry) and on interactions between individual and collective performance and contextual and institutional factors.

Additional functions:

  • Full Professor of Applied Econometrics of Research, Innovations and Productivity, School of Business and Economics, Maastricht University
  • Research Associate, Centre de Recherche en Economie et Statistique - l'Ecole Nationale de la Statistique et de l'Administration Economique (CREST - ENSAE), France
  •  Research Associate, National Bureau of Economic Research, Cambridge, Mass., USA. Président of the Comité Scientifique et de Prospective de l'Observatoire des Sciences et techniques (OST), France. 
  • Consultant à la Direction des Etudes Microéconomiques et Structurelles, Direction Générale des Etudes et des Relations Internationales de la Banque de France (DEMS - DGEI, BDF), France.
  • Member of editorial board of Economics of Innovation and New Technology, and scientific committee of Revue Economique.
