A busy 3 years for TCLab research

This past three years, TCLab-related research has expanded, especially on the economics of innovation and technological learning in agriculture, the health industry, and in urbanization.

In 2014, TCLab research was presented by TCLab Visiting Fellow Jose Eustaquio Vieira Filho at the Globelics conference on the economics of innovation in Addis Ababa.

In 2015, Srinivas and TCLab Visiting Fellow Filho's early paper was published by IPEA, the Institute for Applied Economics Research

Srinivas, S. and J. Vieira Filho (2015).”Farms versus Firms in Economic Development: The assumptions and consequences of learning dynamics in agriculture and manufacturing”, Institute for Applied Economic Research (IPEA) Brasilia, Brazil, Discussion Paper 207, October.

In 2016 September in the US, Smita Srinivas presented the research in several talks.

She was also a presenter or active participant in workshops on the health industry.

2016 Invited speaker, MIT “Beyond “Catch-up”: Learning & Economic Development in Health, Agriculture, and Manufacturing”, Kick-off session, Fall Seminar series “Innovation in Emerging Economies”, Industrial Performance Center (IPC), Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT),September 21, Cambridge, MA, USA;

In 2016 two talks were given in the US's agricultural heartland, Iowa. Iowa is the hub for biotech research and new economic development pressures in "new" manufacturing.

The talks were held in the Urban and Regional Planning program at the University of Iowa in Iowa City, and at the City and Community Planning program at the Iowa State University of Science and Technology in Ames.
