Link identifier #identifier__39633-1Professor Carlo Pietrobelli - Head of Department of Economics at University Roma Tre - will participate as invited speaker to the Online Workshop #4 "Innovation Policy for Technology Upgrading".
The workshop explores different facets of innovation policies for technology upgrading in the context of significantly changing policy philosophies evolving from import substitution earlier on and the Washington consensus policies more recently to the post-Covid19 context of today. Specifically, the workshop explores the role of strategic intent and policy leadership in technology upgrading as well as how countries can reshape the nature of the existing value chains and innovation networks dominated by foreign multinational enterprises (MNEs)? How to set initiatives and programs to use Global Value Chains (GVCs) as levers for local technology accumulation? What are the limits of GVC only technology upgrading policies? Finally, how should policymakers go about implementing new policy? How to design and implement programs which will recognise the danger of failure, vested interests as well as low policy capacity endemic to emerging economies?
Those are some of the questions we will be dealing with on March 25.
