Special Issue on Research, Innovation, New Technologies, and Institutions

The modern literature on endogenous economic growth and development traditionally emphasizes both the role of technological advances (including financial innovation which is attracting increasingly more attention) and human capital as factors securing sustainable long-term growth rates. On top of these well-established pillars of growth, the role of Institutions (and the Institutional Framework in general) has also been the focus of numerous research endeavors as a potentially very important growth determinant also contributing to social cohesion and development.

The Special Issue is expected to attract contributions stemming from three sources: on one hand, from researchers focusing on the theoretical and applied background of socio-economic incentives toward Research, Innovation and Technology leading to sustainable, value-augmenting technological change and, eventually, economic growth. On the other, from researchers aiming at explaining the role of Institutions for growth and development of countries worldwide while human capital and its contribution to growth could well be the third source of relevant research endeavors.

Along these lines, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on exploring the themes of Research, Innovation, New technologies, and Institutions. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Determinants of Research, Innovation, New Technology and Technological Knowledge
  • Research Funding
  • Research, Innovation, New Technologies, Technology Diffusion and Economic Growth
  • Digitalization of Government Services and Productivity / Innovation
  • Productivity, Efficiency, Effectiveness and Quality in R&D systems
  • Financial Innovation and Growth
  • Institutions from the Perspective of Economics and Governance
  • Institutions and Sustainable Economic Growth / Development.
  • Cryptocurrency and digital finance
  • Green finance
  • Artificial intelligence and machine learning applications in finance.
  • Economic Evaluation of Investments in Education, Training, Lifelong Learning, Research
  • New Technologies, and Innovation
  • Costs, Expenditure, Financing of Education, Lifelong Learning, Research, New Technologies, and Innovation
  • Formation of Human Capital, Training, Lifelong Learning, Research
  • New Technologies, Innovation and Productivity, Economic Growth – Development, and Income Distribution and Labour Markets

Authors should read over the journal's For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal's Paper Submission System.

Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue - Research, Innovation, New technologies, and Institutions” should be chosen during your submission.
