The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers from around the world to discuss the importance of innovation for economic growth and development. This year a particular emphasis will be placed on inclusive development and the role of innovation in achieving it. However, other papers on innovation, knowledge diffusion and development are also welcome (see the list below for possible topics). Priority will be given to empirical studies that are devoted to developing countries and that are based on micro data, such as innovation surveys, R&D surveys, firm and household surveys, patents, publications, or research grants. There is also room for methodological and theoretical papers as well as for case studies.
Researchers are invited to submit a paper by December 3, 2014. Extended abstracts and incomplete papers are accepted for submission, but preference will be given to full papers.
Venue: New Delhi, India
