8th European Meeting on Applied Evolutionary Economics June 10-12.2013 SKEMA Business SchoolSophia Antipolis, France
The European Meeting on Applied Evolutionary Economics (EMAEE) is an international conference held every two years. EMAEE gives an opportunity for young researchers to discuss the latest insights and methods in applied evolutionary economics and innovation studies with the best international scholars. This year the conference was organized for the 8th time on the 10-12th of June in Sophia Antipolis in France. Leading scholars from Europe and North America presented keynote speeches during the plenary talks:
Bronwyn Hall (University of California at Berkeley),
Giorgio Fagiolo (Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies),
Robert Axtell (George Mason University),
Uwe Cantner (Friedrich Schiller University),
Giovanni Dosi (Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies),
Alan Kirman (Aix Marseille School of Economics),
Raoul Minetti (Michigan State University),
Pietro Peretto (Duke University),
Maryann Feldman (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill),
Bart Verspagen (Maastricht University).
The younger researchers were given an opportunity to receive the comments of the leading scholars on their presentations. I, together with my colleague Tony Irawan, have presented a joint paper on the topic «Competitiveness of Manufacturing Sector: Gross Trade versus Value Added Trade» during the Session 6C Trade, Agglomeration and Aggregate Performance on the 12th of June at 16:00. We have received valuable comments and suggestions from the session chair and the discussants. It is very helpful for our future work on the topic and the improvement of our paper. During the conference I have visited 6 sessions on the following topics: Geography, Technology Policy, Empirical Analyses of Firms Dynamics, ABMs of Firm and Industry Dynamics, Growth in Emerging Economies, Trade, Agglomeration and Aggregate Performance.
The presentations were very interesting. I have learnt a lot about the current state of the empirical economic research. The use of agent—based models for modeling the economics dynamics was completely new and highly interesting for me.
