The strategic purpose of this Workshop is to stimulate research proposals to address the five under-studied aspects of the Economics of Innovation identified in the attached invitation. To this end, an hour of open discussion will be allotted to each of these subject areas, with the discussion orchestrated by the Institute organizers. It is not intended to have any presentations of research projects or results, although relevant materials provided in advance by attendees will be circulated to all prior to the relevant dates. The Agenda has been established to allow time for informal discussion among participants. In addition, time is allotted for identification of additional topics not specified in the Invitation.
