Evolution and Dynamics of Industrial Structures and

Ecosystems: innovation and productivity in industries

Durham University Business School (DUBS), with support

from the IAS, is organising a mini-conference on ‘Evolution and

Dynamics of Industrial Structures and Ecosystems: innovation

and productivity in industries’ to be held at Durham University

Business School on Friday 22 September 2017.

The purpose of this conference is to discuss new concepts,

trends and recent research results in dynamics of industrial and

ecosystem structures in conjunction with company innovation,

survival and growth.

The conference will focus on ecosystem organisation and

evolution of industrial structures, including such important

issues as creative destruction and innovation, industrial time

structure (life cycles), firm sustainability (survival) and industrial

structure and temporality, and scale laws in company birth-exit

and distribution.

Complete or developmental papers with rigorous methodology

on several themes have been particularly welcomed:

Self-organisation and evolution of industrial structures,

including historical and geographical perspectives;

Heterogeneity, non-linearity, endogeneity and uncertainty

in micro-econometric studies of innovation;

Alternative approaches to firm productivity, industrial

evolution and structure;

Mathematical modelling of industrial structures in time and

space and their impact on company performance;

Innovation, industry/technology shakeouts and life cycles.

The conference is intended to facilitate cross-disciplinary

dialogue and has welcomed papers with a diverse range of

rigorous research methodologies.

Durham University Business School is accredited by all major

academic bodies (AACSB International, AMBA and EQUIS).

The conference is free of charge to attend; however registration
