IIES/SNS International Policy Talks: Eric Verhoogen on firms’ adaptation to new technology

Welcome to a seminar where Professor Eric Verhoogen of Columbia University will present his research on industrial development and technology adoption of firms.

Why are firms often slow to adapt and incorporate new technology into their existing business? Eric Verhoogen, Professor of Economics at Columbia University, studies the importance of organizational obstacles when it comes to adoption of new technology. He investigates the impact of introducing incentives for key actors within a firm on the speed of implementation of technological innovation.

Tessa Bold, Associate Professor of Economics at the Institute for International Economic Studies (IIES), Stockholm University, will comment based on her own research.

IIES/SNS International Policy Talks is a collaboration between the Institute for International Economic Studies (IIES) at Stockholm University and SNS with the mission to bring insights from leading international economists to the Swedish policy debate.

The seminar will be held in English.
