Seventh CEPR Conference on Applied Industrial Organization: Network Industry Structure, Investment and Competition in the New Economy

Universidade da Madeira, Funchal, Portugal

18 - 20 May 2006



In emphasising the importance of the dynamics of economic systems, this series of CEPR conferences on Applied Industrial Organisation aims to move the frontiers of research in the domain of the 'new economy' and the knowledge society, a set of key developments which gathered momentum at the turn of the 21st century.
More specifically, the series aims to contribute to an analytical understanding of the issues raised by the new economy and their impacts on the wealth of economies and peoples, develop empirical protocols and tests of economic models, promote the exchange and the dissemination of results at the forefront of research, and finally, re-evaluate current competition and regulation policies.
