This Group aims to study Innovation and Labour and their interconnections, considering that the current growth regime is undermining the responsible use of resources and social cohesion. The main objective of the Innovation team is to further the understanding of how knowledge and innovation may reconcile wealth creation and the transition to a sustainable regime. Technological entrepreneurship, academic spin-offs, and the creation and dissemination of new technologies are also relevant for this team. The Labour team focuses on the recent trends of labour market, notably the rise of precariousness, unemployment, and wage and income inequality in post-industrial economies, which have renewed the interest of scholars and policy makers in labour market segmentation and polarization arguments. The research attempts to provide insights into social cohesion linked to the world of work.
