  • 1.  AOM Symposium on "Scientific and Technical Knowledge: Search, Diffusion, and Impact" (session 1322)

    Posted 16 days ago

    We cordially invite you to join us for a panel symposium focusing on a diverse set of issues related to the role of scientific and technical knowledge for innovation. The symposium will take place in-person on August 8th 2022 from 12:00 PM to 1:30PM (Seattle / Pacific Daylight Time) at the Seattle Convention Center (SCC, Room 3B). The session is co-sponsored by the Entrepreneurship (ENT), Strategic Management (STR), and Technology and Innovation Management (TIM) divisions of the Academy.

    The symposium features four papers on the topics of search, diffusion, and impact of technical knowledge. The format will provide both formal and interactive discussions. It will discuss 1) the role of data in the search for innovation, 2) the directional consequences of data availability on the accumulation and diffusion of technical knowledge, and 3) the localization of knowledge and how physical proximity of scientists and inventors influence knowledge flows and company creation. Confirmed panelists include leading scholars like Lee Fleming, Matt Marx, and Abhishek Nagaraj. Each panelist will introduce recent empirical findings with a focus on the identification strategy used, including exploitation of scientist death events, a shift-share and leave-out approach based on historic census data for regional mobility of human capital, and laboratory experiments.

    Please feel free to reach out to Matteo Tranchero (m.tranchero@berkeley.edu) if you have any questions.
