THE CONCEPT & THE VENUE

This Summer School represents a unique learning experience for anyone involved in advanced doctoral work in the area of technology and innovation management. It provides an exclusive opportunity for doctoral students to receive feedback on their work form leading academics and editors of renowned journals in the field of R&D and Innovation Management.

This year’s Summer School’s format is as follows:
Each doctoral student has to submit a full paper with the potential to be published in a high-tier journal (JPIM, R&D Management, Creativity and Innovation Management, Research Policy). The students will be selected based on their full paper for the targeted journal and will have the opportunity to work with the tutors on their paper to make it ready for publication. In addition, they will receive valuable feedback from the tutors on their research work, future career opportunities in academia and beyond, and experience the start-up flair and innovative climate of KU Leuven and beyond.

Your host: KU Leuven Managerial Economics, Strategy and Innovation
The department of Managerial Economics, Strategy and Innovation (MSI) is one of the five departments of the Faculty of Business and Economics of the KU Leuven.
Research and teaching at the department span the domains of managerial economics, industrial organization, international business, innovation economics and management, political economy, and entrepreneurship.
Major research topics include: the effects of market integration on corporate strategies, competition versus cooperation in strategic R&D investments, management of innovation in global firms, university-industry transfers and their impact on innovative productivity, political business strategies and businessgovernment relations, multinational business location decisions, and the internationalization of R&D.
The academic staff of the MSI department includes 15 professors and currently 41 PhD students and (postdoctoral) researchers.
