363-1036-00LEmpirical Innovation EconomicsW3 KP1GM. Wörter
KurzbeschreibungThe course focuses on important factors that drive the innovation performance of firms, like innovation capabilities, the use of digital technologies, environmental and innovation policy and it shows how innovation activities relate to firm performance and to the technological dynamic of industries. We also discuss the implications of the findings for effective economic policy-making.
LernzielThe course provides students with the basic skills to understand and assess empirically the technological activities of firms and the technological dynamics of industries. In addition, the aim is to promote the understanding of the essential criteria for innovation policy-making.

Personal and social skills are also addressed during the course. In particular, there is the possibility to improve communication and presentation skills, the ability to develop arguments for the positions of political representatives, policy-makers, pressure groups, or NGOs in connection with innovation policy-making.
InhaltThe course consists of two parts. Part I provides an introduction into important topics in the field of the economics of innovation. Part II consists of empirical exercises based on various firm-level data sets, e.g., the KOF Innovation data, data about the digitization of firms, data about environmentally friendly innovations, or patent data. In part I, we will learn about ... a) market conditions that encourage firms to invest in R&D (Research and Development) and develop new products and processes. ... b) the role of competition and market structure for the R&D activities of companies. ...c) how digital and environmentally friendly technologies diffuse among firms. ...d) how the R&D activities of firms are affected by economic crises and how firms finance their R&D activities. ...e) how we can measure the returns to R&D activities. ...f) how environmental policies and innovation policies affect the technological activities of a firm. In part II we will use the KOF Innovation Survey data, patent data, data on digitization of firms, or other longitudinal data sources, to investigate empirically the technological activities of firms in relation to the topics introduced in part I.

364-0585-01LPhD Course: Applied EconometricsW2 KP2VP. Egger
KurzbeschreibungIn this course, we will address three blocs of selected problems: (i) estimation of fixed and random effects panel data models for single equations and systems of equations; (ii) estimation of models with endogenous treatment effects or sample selection; (iii) estimation of models with interdependent data (so-called spatial models).
LernzielThe main agenda of this course is to familiarize students with the estimation of econometric problems with three alternative types of problems: (i) estimation of fixed and random effects panel data models for single equations and systems of equations; (ii) estimation of models with endogenous treatment effects or sample selection; (iii) estimation of models with interdependent data (so-called spatial models). Students will be able to program estimation routines for such problems in STATA and apply them to data-sets. They will be given a data-set and will have to work out empirical problems in the context of a term paper.
SkriptFor panel data analysis, I will rely on the book:
Baltagi, Badi H. (2005), Econometric Analysis of Panel Data, Wiley: Chichester.

For sample selection and endogenous treatment effect analysis, I will rely on the book:
Wooldridge, Jeffrey M. (2002), Econometric Analysis of Cross Section and Panel Data, MIT Press: Cambridge, MA.

For spatial econometrics:
I will mostly use papers.

I will prepare a script (based on slides), covering all topics.

KurzbeschreibungIntroducing dynamic models and workhorses in macroeconomics, understanding the role of innovation and institutions for economic development and discussing policies to foster innovation and economic growth, with a perspective on how digitization and artificial intelligence will affect our economies.
LernzielAfter the course, students will be familiar with dynamic general equilibrium theory and the basic workhorses in macroeconomics. Participants will be able to speak the Arrow-Debreu and recursive language and apply the frameworks to interesting issues, such as innovation and growth. Moreover, students will understand how the world has developed over the last centuries and the proximate and fundamental causes of innovation and economic growth. Students will understand and apply the basic models of economic growth and will be able to identify policies to foster innovation and growth and to reduce the large wealth differences in the world. Finally, they understand how digitization and artificial intelligence will drive the economies.

364-1168-00LEconomics of InequalityW3 KP2VI. Martinez
KurzbeschreibungWe discuss research on inequality in different areas of economics. Possible topics include distributional national accounts, heterogeneous returns, inheritances, intergenerational mobility, gender inequality in the labor market (topics will also be decided upon depending on the students' interests). Students will present a paper and critically comment on it (as if they would referee the paper).
LernzielAfter the course, participants will have a solid understanding of the current state of research on inequality in different fields in economics and, starting from there, will be able to develop their own research ideas. They will further learn how to critically assess and referee a paper, as it is common practice during the referee process, and they will practice their presentation skills and give feedback to each other. The students will therefore also acquire competences for conferences and participation in the scientific discourse.
InhaltThe target group of this course are PhD students who are interested in writing a paper related to economic inequality. Advanced Master students who are interested in taking the course, especially those who plan to pursue a PhD in Economics afterwards, are welcome, too. The topic is intentionally kept broad to leave room for individual research interests and cover different areas. This will allow students to get to know the current state of research in different, but related areas and help them develop their own research question.

By critically examining the literature, students will also learn what makes a well-written paper. By presenting papers, students will further train their presentation skills and we will take time to give feedback in class on the presentations, too. Oral and written presentation of research are both integral parts of a successful academic career. In the written assignment, finally, students will learn how to write a referee report.

The course will start with an introduction into the topic and an overview of inequality research in economics. Inequality has become a buzz-word in many paper titles and abstracts, but different areas of economics have sometimes very different approaches to this popular topic. The main part of the course will consist of reading and presenting papers that belong to different areas of economics, including Macroeconomics, Public Economics, and Microeconomics / Labour Economics.

Below you find the suggestive syllabus for this course. I will provide a list of papers in each of the six blocks at the beginning of the semester, and students will choose a paper to present during the semester (suggestions to present a paper that is not on the list are welcome). Students are required to read all papers discussed in the course. At the end of the semester, they will write a referee report with possible suggestions for future research. The written assignment is due in early January.
