Each year we organize a two-week summer school for our PhD students as well as external PhD students. 

The Summer School is integrated in the interdisciplinary environment of the Jena Schumpeter Center for Research on Socio-Economic Change. During the past editions, the Summer Academy has proved to be one of the most inspiring gathering worldwide for what concerns the novel fields of economic research related to innovation, entrepreneurship, economic evolution, and methodological approaches. Over the years, highly distinguished scholars provided the participants with outstanding lectures at the very frontier of scientific research.

The aim of the Summer Academy is to create an environment that brings senior researchers and PhD students closer together, supporting and promoting the start of new projects by organized group works, studies and unique collaborations. Therefore, it represents the best occasion for young researchers to experience a fascinating “guided tour” to high quality research.
