In collaboration with international partners CESIS arranges a 2 days CDM workshop in Paris October 9 and 10.

 In 1998, the seminal paper Research Innovation and Productivity: An Econometric Analysis at the Firm Level was published. This paper, commonly labeled CDM (the acronym of the three authors’ names, Crépon, Duguet and Mairesse) is one of the most influential contributions in recent literature on economics of innovation. The original CDM paper and papers inspired by its framework have received thousands  of citations in the empirical innovation literature.

The Paris workshop is the second in a process that aims to critically discuss questions such as: How relevant is the CDM framework? To What Extent did it result from the availability of new micro-economic data almost two decades ago, provided in particular by the Community Innovation Surveys in European countries? To what exent does it reflect the micro econometric state of the art in the 1990s? How can the CDM framework be enhanced and improved to answer questions today? How can we improve the understanding of the economics of innovation by the creative exploitation of the growing accessibility to regional, national and international databases?  In the Paris workshop,  selected “state-of-the-art” empirical research within the CDM-tradition will be be presented and dicussed.
