EuroTech PhD course “The Economics and Management of Innovation and Technological Change”

On behalf of the EuroTech Universities Alliance, Technical University of Denmark is pleased to host a PhD course in innovation management and innovation economics. The course will alternate formal lectures on various topics in the field of economics and management of innovation, with interactive sessions including PhD student presentations, open discussions, and individual coaching. The course has a study load of 120 hours, which equals around 4 ECTs (1 ECT = 28 work hours).

Specifically, the daily programme offers:

  • Formal lecture (1:30 hrs): Professors present topics of special interest in the economics or management of innovation.
  • PhD student presentations: Depending on the stage of the student’s research, the presentation will focus either on the research plan or on a paper in progress. Students who have an early-stage working paper will receive more time to present. The preparation of the presentation is done BEFORE the start of the course.
  • Individual coaching: A session for an individual student with a professor. The timing will be decided on a case-by-case basis, depending on the availability of the professor.
  • Lots of opportunities to meet and discuss with others and network, also at lunch, dinner, and a special social event during the week.

This PhD course on the Economics and Management of Innovation and Technological Change is taking place already for the fifth time. It was initiated under the coordination of Dominique Foray at EPFL, where the course was held in 2015 and 2017. In 2019, the course took place at TUM, and in 2021 at TU/e.
