European agenda for entrepreneurship, innovation and growth

2017-05-12


Institutional Reform for Innovation and Entrepreneurship: An Agenda for Europe (SpringerBrief in Economics 2017) is the title of a recently published book authored by the IFN researchers Niklas Elert, Magnus Henrekson and Mikael Stenkula. The study was conducted within the framework of the EU project Fires. The authors propose a series of institutional reforms to promote entrepreneurship, innovation and growth. A European reform agenda should have its eyes set on liberalization, the authors argue. Though, "it falls on reformers to creatively package the principles into institutional designs that are sensitive to local constraints and take advantage of local opportunities".

Tuesday May 23, 2017, IFN is organizing a seminar in cooperation with The European Commission in Sweden. Professor Magnus Henrekson will present  Institutional Reform for Innovation and Entrepreneurship: An Agenda for Europe, followed by a panel discussion.
