Smita Srinivas delivers Third Memorial Christopher Freeman Lecture, JNU 2017

The Third Memorial Christopher Freeman Lecture will be held on November 5 2017 at the Centre for Studies in Science Policy at the Jawaharlal Nehru University in New Delhi. The lecture will coincide with the last day of the Indialics conference on the economics of innovation. Freeman, the Founder Director of the Science Policy Research Unit (SPRU) at the University of Sussex, UK, is something of a household name for economists studying innovation, business organization, institutional change, and economic development.

Prof. Saradindu Bhaduri, Chairperson, Centre for Studies in Science Policy, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi and the organising committee have instituted the Memorial Chris Freeman Lectures to honor a great economist and innovation scholar.
