The Seasonal School programme on “Economics of Innovation and Technological Change” addresses both the theoretical and the empirical underpinnings of the economics of innovation and technical change, as well as recent debates at the frontier of the field.

The topics covered include: technological paradigms and trajectories, innovation and firm strategies, sectoral patterns of innovation, analysis of patent data, innovation and economic growth, innovation and competitiveness, innovation and intellectual property rights. The programme also offers an overview of statistical methods and techniques aimed at analysing relevant empirical data for innovation studies.

Students will gain frameworks and tools to understand key-issues in this field: how do we measure innovation? How do firms exploit innovation in different sectors? What is the connection between intellectual property rights regimes and innovation? Which are the most effective tools to foster innovation in different contexts?

Students will engage with and will learn from full-time professors from the Sant’Anna Institute of Economics through a mix of lecture-based and laboratory classes. Key teaching staff: Giovanni Dosi, Giulio Bottazzi, Arianna Martinelli, Julia Mazzei, Andrea Mina, Daniele Moschella, Alessandro Nuvolari, Federico Tamagni.

Selected participants will be offered partial travel stipends by the YSI. There is a fee for attending the school, which fully covers accommodation and food during the Seasonal School. Unfortunately, the fee cannot be covered by YSI.  The Institute of Economics at the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna will waive the fees for a selected number of YSI participants who asked for the reduction fee attaching proof documents.


To be considered for the waive fee you SHALL also subscribe for the reduced tuition fee in the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna website, sending documents proving limited income (e.g proof of receipt of scholarship, income tax, etc), otherwise you will have to cover the complete submission fee by yourself. Please, also notice that the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna will ONLY cover the fee for YSI’s members from that subscribed for both process (YSI and Sant’Anna website) and who asked for the reduction fee attaching proof documents.

Also, note that in order to be considered for the YSI travel stipend it is required to apply BOTH to the Seasonal School and to the YSI selection. These are separate processes and the selection for the Seasonal School by the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna works on a “first come, first served” basis, while the YSI selection process will take place after the deadline on May 20th, 2024. The YSI’s selection divulgation will only take place after the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna decision.
