Conférence : “Catch-up Cycles and Changes in Industrial Leadership: Windows of Opportunity and Responses of Firms and Countries in the Evolution of Sectoral Systems”

Professor Keun Lee will talk about the recent special issue of Research Policy, Volume 46, Issue 2, March 2017, ‘‘Catch-up cycles and changes in the industrial leadership’’, co-authored with Franco Malerba. The article addresses the issue of changes in the industry leadership in 6 sectors with a new theoretical framework called ‘‘catch up cycles’’. The 6 sectors are identified as sectors of steel, camera, cell phones, wines, mid-sized jets and semiconductors. To identify factors at the base of catch-up cycles, this article adopts a sectoral system framework and identifies windows of opportunity that may emerge during the long-run evolution of an industry.

Conférence organisée par la Fondation France-Japon de l’EHESS.
  • Horaire : 17h-19h
  • Lieu : EHESS, 54 boulevard Raspail 75006 Paris, salle 737 (7e étage)

Workshop CEAFJP : "The Role of the Exchange Rate for the Real Economy – Experiences from Japan and the Eurozone"

Workshop organisé par le CEAFJP dans le cadre de la Chaire Banque de France 2017.

The aim of the workshop is to analyse the role of the exchange rate for economies, drawing mainly on the experiences of Japan and the European economies. Questions that are to be addressed include: To what extent do exchange rate levels and exchange rate volatility affect trade? Have long-term changes in the exchange rate impacted on economic structures in Japan and Europe? What is the importance of exchange rate pass-through? How successful are central bank interventions in the foreign exchange market aimed at managing the exchange rate?

Conference : "Incidence of Social Security Contributions: Evidence from France"

In this paper, we study the earnings responses to three large increases in employer social security contributions (SSCs) in France over the period 1976-2010. Using a difference-in-differences (DiD) estimation strategy, we find systematic evidence of increased labour cost, i.e., the absence of full tax shifting to workers, at the individual level, within five to six years after reforms that increased SSCs with little or no tax-benefit linkage. Our DiD estimates point to limited shifting of SSCs to employees in the form of lower wages, with an estimated employer share of the tax burden between 55 percent and 88 percent. In contrast, we find evidence of full shifting of increase s in employer SSCs in the case of strong and salient tax-benefit linkage. We interpret these results as providing compelling evidence that the tax-benefit linkage matters for incidence, and we discuss possible explanations for the non-standard result of long-term nominal incidence of SSCs at the individual level.

Conference : "Notional defined contributions : a new model for European pension systems?"

In the 1990s, Sweden reformed its public pension systems according to the model of Notional defined contributions (NDCs), a number of europeans countries have followed this path. Today the new French government is contemplating reforming its pension system into the NDC model. Is that the emergence of a new European model for pension design ?

Workshop CEAFJP : "Innovation policy in AI/IoT era : Investigating university industry collaboration 2.0"

Workshop co-organisé par le CEAFJP et l'OCDE dans le cadre de la Chaire Michelin/CEAFJP 2017.

Digitalization has a transformative impact on innovation in firms and industry, where new business models are disrupting traditional industries. Ubiquitous IT infrastructure enables sharing goods services, big data analytics and AI technologies are used for condition based maintenance (CBM), by which industrial machinery producers such as GE can provide new value to their customers, and an advancement of automated driving technology may change the landscape of mobility related goods and services industry completely. This workshop puts together academia and industry people on review about recent scientific works on measuring digitalization of innovation, focusing on AI/IoT technologies, to facilitate discussion on the new style of public privation cooperation in innovation. This workshop is organized in the framework of the 2017 CEAFJP Michelin Fellowship program.

Workshop CEAFJP : "Disability in Cross-National Perspective. New Technologies of Personal Mobility in the Era of the Aging Society"

Workshop organisé par le CEAFJP dans le cadre de la Chaire Valéo/CEAFJP 2017.

Life innovation is a growth-driving industry that supports the medical, nursing and health-related industries in the developed economy. Using life innovation to develop new service and manufacturing industries should enable the construction of a sustainable social security system tailored to its future super-aged society. A new market of approximately 50 trillion yen and the creation of 2.84 million new jobs is expected in these medical, nursing and health-related services in 2020. Among the technological developments of life innovation, the research, development and commercialization of nursing care robots, personal mobility for the elderly, and life support robots utilizing manufacturing technology as well as advanced medical technology and information and communication technology (ICT) are expected. This workshop is an attempt to gather leading international experts on the theme and to provide new views of sustainable human future through the collaboration between Japanese and European researchers.

Workshop : « Corps juxtaposés dans le monde moderne et contemporain : répétition, variation et comparaison des images. Au croisement de l’histoire de l’art et de l’anthropologie »

La pratique de la juxtaposition des images du corps représente et symbolise la notion du temps et de l’histoire. Depuis « la vision successive » du Laocoon découvert par Goethe à la chronophotographie d’Etienne Jules-Marey, la juxtaposition des images montre au regardeur l’enchaînement des mouvements, de l’évènement ou de l’histoire, qui occupe dans le temps des moments voisins mais distincts. Cette pratique affirme ainsi une génétique créatrice des formes : si Picasso démontre le processus de l’abstraction du Taureau dans ses eaux-fortes en 1945, Matisse expose, la même année à la Galerie Maeght, les reproductions photographiques des différentes étapes de son œuvre avant qu’elle ne soit achevée afin d’exposer les variations de l’image nées pendant l’exécution. L’objectif du colloque est de considérer les phénomènes de répétition, de variation et de comparaison des images du corps dans la culture visuelle à l’époque moderne et contemporaine, en se focalisant sur les problématiques que suscite la pratique de la juxtaposition des images du corps.
