The conference is jointly organised by OECD’s Committee on Industry, Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CIIE), its Working Party on Industry Analysis (WPIA) and, the EU-sponsored “Growth, Welfare, Innovation and Productivity” (GROWINPRO) project.
The aim is to gather comparative cross-country evidence and discuss a wide array of policy-relevant issues related to:
‒ The micro and macroeconomic analysis of productivity;
‒ Industry structure and dynamics;
‒ The international division of labour, global value chains and the creation and appropriation of value;
‒ Technological change and the patterns of employment;
‒ The role that innovation and competition policies may play in the digital transformation.
