July 27-30, Jena, Germany


Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It was our great pleasure 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 was:

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

This year´s Schumpeter Conference was 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. We hope you enjoyed the original presentations, the intense discussions, the intellectual spirit, and the social atmosphere of the conference!

We thank all of you for your participation!
