Welcome Note

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

we are very pleased to welcome you to the 15th International Conference of the International Joseph A. Schumpeter Society (ISS), hosted by the Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Germany, from 27–30 July, 2014. The theme of the conference is:

Foundations of Economic Change – Behaviour,
Interaction and Aggregate Outcomes.

Jena is one of the most remarkable cities in Germany. It is a place at the crossroads of ancient and contemporary history which has always been a host to great philosophers and scientists. During the last decades, Jena developed into a dynamic, fast-growing science-based industrial city providing an excellent environment for a conference on Economic Change. Therefore we hope you will enjoy the conference as well as the social programme that will let you to discover a bit more about our Science City.

We expect this Schumpeter Conference to be a unique event for our community, assessing the state of Neo-Schumpeterian economics as well setting the agenda for high level research in the years to come. For that we organised a programme allowing for lively discussions of original research on a broad range of topics reaching from Behavioural and Experimental Economics via Industrial Dynamics, Regional Economics and Entrepreneurship to Evolutionary Economics, Economic Growth Theory and Agent-Based Modelling. Enjoy the original presentations, the intense discussions, the intellectual spirit, and the social atmosphere of the conference!

Last not least, we remind you that all the information is available also at the Conference website.
In general, we remain at your disposal and wish you a great Conference.
