  • International Conference on University-Based Entrepreneurship and Regional Development: Theory, Empirics and Practical Implementation (ICUBERD)

    Dátum: December 1-2, 2016

    Helyszín: Faculty of Business and Economics, University of Pécs

    Mission: Entrepreneurial activities either commercial or non-commercial ones are crucial drivers of both the economic and the social development of a region. Universities, as the sources of innovative ideas and new discoveries should take a leading role in initializing, catalysing, and coordinating such activities to strengthen the regional innovation system and to integrate the stakeholders of the region into a wider international innovation system. By taking the lead in this process universities should solve socioeconomic problems that have the potential of helping communities in the region and also around the world. Those institutions that choose to be initiators, catalysts and coordinators of their regional innovation system should make changes on multiple domains, most importantly in the mindset of the stakeholders of the innovation system. How it can be pursued and what are the pitfalls of such a process is still to be discovered, debated and resolved. The conference aims to address two important domains: how to drive and manage a process of institutional transformation towards a more entrepreneurial model, and how university-based ecosystems can be nurtured in cultural, economic and socio-political environments that may not be naturally conducive to entrepreneurship and innovation.

  • Via Futuri 2014 International Conference: Sustainability – Competitiveness – Regional development. Theoretical research and empirical applications at the University of Pécs

    Dátum: November 27-28, 2014

    Helyszín: Faculty of Business and Economics, University of Pécs

    Mission: This closing conference is the final event of a European Union supported SROP research, named as “Modeling the effects of the energy-production, utilization and waste management technologies to the competitiveness of the cities and regions” This SROP- 4.2.2 A – 11/1/KONV-2012-0058 project aimed to initiate a fundamental research to analyze and model in a complex way the effects that different energy production, consumption and waste-managing technologies have on corporate competitiveness, urban and regional governance. The research was carried out in five working groups. One of the major objectives of the conference is to present the most important results of these five working groups. Moreover, the conference is intent to bring together interested scholars, researchers, experts, and policy makers from the fields of environmental studies, competitiveness, regional and urban development.
    The following sessions were organized directly or by invited researchers of the RIERC faculty: Competitiveness 1-4. chaired by László Szerb, Environmental CGE modeling chaired by Hannu Törma, and Technical developments in GMR.E-HU chaired by Tamás Sebestyén. Professor László Szerb also held a plenary lecture under title How competitive are the Hungarian enterprises?

  • Economic Modeling to Support Developmental Policy (Gazdaságmodellezés a fejlesztéspolitika szolgálatában)

    Dátum: July 3-4, 2010

    Helyszín: Faculty of Business and Economics, University of Pécs

    Mission: The workshop is related to the IAREG project funded by the 7th Framework Program of the European Union. In frame of the project the economic modelling group of the PTE KTK developed a complex macro- and regional level model system that aims the ex-ante and ex-post impact assessment of knowledge based regional development (tools: support of human capital, research and development, social capital). The model was applied to 144 regions of the EU. The workshop has twofold objectives. On the one hand, it introduces the model system to the experts of organisations involved in regional- and macro level developmental policy. On the other hand, it aims to provide an outlook to the expert participants by introducing further European and national modelling initiatives related to the model developed by the PTE KTK. The invited presenters rather put an emphasis on the models instead of focusing on technical details.

  • Regional innovation and growth:
    Theory, empirics and policy analysis

    Dátum: March 31 – April 1, 2011

    Helyszín: Faculty of Business and Economics, University of Pécs

    Scientific and policy attention towards the regional dimension of technical change and ultimately economic growth has been growing substantially in the last decades. The theoretical integration of the new economic geography with the endogenous growth theory opened the way to look at the complex relationships between agglomeration dynamism and macroeconomic growth in a more structured way. At the same time, evolutionary views of technological change have contributed to develop theoretical and empirical approaches to structural and institutional transformations of regional economic systems. A burgeoning empirical literature has investigated a wide range of related topics such as the role of regional actors in innovation with a special interest in the academic sector and entrepreneurial firms, the spatial nature of knowledge transfers with increasing recent interest in the mechanism of interregional knowledge linkages, the nature of cumulative agglomeration externalities, and the integration of dynamic spatial structure into macroeconomic investigations. Various methods of research are applied in empirical and policy impact studies, ranging from survey techniques, spatial econometrics, network analysis, and numerical simulations to spatial CGE modeling and micro-to-macro economic approaches. The recent emergence of the concept of place-based economic development policy indicates the relevance of this field of research for policy making.

  • Universities and regional development:
    Success factors and potential dangers of failure

    Dátum: October 21-22, 2005

    Helyszín: Faculty of Business and Economics, University of Pécs

    Mission: The Center for Research in Economic Policy at the Faculty of Business and Economics, University of Pécs (a DIME Center of Excellence) organizes an international workshop „Universities and regional development: Success factors and potential dangers of failure".
    Anecdotal evidence suggests that under certain conditions a research university can play a central role in generating economic growth for the region where the university resides. Unlike Silicon Valley, Route 128 or the Cambridge Phenomenon recently emerging high technology centers in the US, Europe and Asia are strongly supported by regional economic development policies.
    Despite high expectations regarding positive regional economic effects of knowledge transfers from academia, systematic evaluations of different knowledge-based regional economic development programs are still rare in the literature. It is still a major question whether university-generated local economic growth observed for the most successful technology regions can also be achieved by other areas. In other words, is local economic development nurtured by academic institutions a rule or an exception?
    Inviting internationally well recognized scholars from Europe and the US this workshop focuses on the issue of regional economic development/cluster building centered around universities. The interest is on international experiences: what are the policy tools that work and what are those that don't? What are the local/national/industrial/cultural/institutional/legal and other factors that determine whether universities can successfully be the drivers of regional development?
