EHESS - Paris, France

17 October 2017

The Fondation France-Japon de l'EHESS is welcoming Professor Keun Lee (Seoul National University) who will talk about the recent special issue of Research Policy, Volume 46, Issue 2, March 2017, ‘‘Catch-up cycles and changes in the industrial leadership’’, co-authored and co-edited with Franco Malerba. The conference will address the issue of changes in the industry leadership in 6 sectors with a new theoretical framework called ‘‘catch up cycles’’. The 6 sectors are identified as sectors of steel, camera, cell phones, wines, mid-sized jets and semiconductors. To identify factors at the base of catch-up cycles, this article adopts a sectoral system framework and identifies windows of opportunity that may emerge during the long-run evolution of an industry.
