The 11th Conference on Model-based Evidence on Innovation and DEvelopment (MEIDE) will be held on 8-9 October 2019 in Abidjan, Ivory Coast.
The conference will be followed on 10 October 2019 by the closing event of the project, ‘The Role of Inclusive Entrepreneurship on Youth and Women’, organised by CAPEC (Cellule d’Analyse des Politiques Economiques du CIRES – Centre Ivoirien de Recherches Economiques et Sociales) and funded by IDRC (the International Development Research Centre), Canada. Participants are invited to attend both conferences.
The aim is to gather researchers from around the world to discuss various aspects of innovation as it relates to economic development. Innovation here is to be understood broadly as any kind of innovation in what firms, households, communities and governments do, or in the way they operate. It includes issues linked to knowledge creation, diffusion, measurement and evaluation. Development here comprises growth but also welfare, poverty alleviation, environmental concerns and fairness in the distribution of wealth and income. This year’s conference will focus in particular on organisational aspects related to innovation, most notably the place of youth and women in science, research and entrepreneurship.
Venue: Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire
