On 19-20 September 2019, the LSE’s Marshall Institute and STICERD, the University of Chicago, and CEPR will host a joint conference. The conference will include joint sessions for the Economics of Social Sector Organisations Conference; Incentives, Management, and Organisation; and Economics of Entrepreneurship as well as individual sessions. The groups have joined forces to explore issues of common interest and facilitate exchanges between researchers with overlapping interests. The Economics of Social Sector Organizations Conference features theoretical and empirical presentations that explore the broad range of organizations addressing social issues, the roles they play in society, their performance, and the reasons for their existence. Incentives, Management and Organisation covers areas such as organisational economics, personnel economics, management and productivity, incentives and contracts, bounded rationality, and behavioral economics. Economics of Entrepreneurship covers entrepreneurship and institutions, financing entrepreneurship (venture capital/business angels), experimentation and entrepreneurship, job creation and entrepreneurship, entrepreneurship in the theory of the firm, and entrepreneurship from an industrial organisation perspective.
