The SCIFI-GLOW collaborative project examines simultaneously the organization of the ‘knowledge sector’ and the behaviour of firms and markets.

The project aims to do this by bringing together two ‘communities’ of economic researchers: those interested primarily in the research sector and those who look at the effect of globalization in terms of trade flows, the organization of firms and product and labour market outcomes. SCIFI-GLOW will connect research teams with expertise in the following areas:

  • economics of science and innovation;
  • economics of incentives and contracts;
  • industrial organization;
  • international trade
  • labour economics

The project will combine theoretical and empirical research, and build upon the growing availability of databases, both at the cross-country and at the national level to highlight interesting case studies.
