Financing Innovations

The Ratio Institute invited young scholars in economics, finance, business administration, law and economic history to submit paper proposals for a cross disciplinary workshop in Stockholm. The aim of this colloquium is to bring together researchers in different fields working on finance and/or innovation. In addition to paper sessions there will be two distinguished keynote speakers and we are delighted to already today present Professor Robert Cooter at Berkeley University as our first keynote speaker.

Professor Cooter has received numerous awards and fellowships and in 1999 he was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
