Innovation and Technology

New ideas and inventions are being produced at rapid rates and can have dramatic impacts on how we live and work. SIEPR researchers are studying both the causes and consequences of innovation, including research and development and burgeoning technology like artificial intelligence, and how best to encourage innovation through patent systems.   SIEPR scholars also study how information and technology are shared and transmitted among people and businesses and the factors that affect productivity and economic growth.
