Dear friends and colleagues,

Sorry for multiple posting!
Before you start your deserved holidays break, I would like to bring to your 
attention the Workshop Series (4 workshops) we are launching on the topic of 
high skilled migration and its relationship with knowledge creation, diffusion, 
entrepreneurship, international business, innovation, and 
more<>. The 4 workshops are 
commonly organized by CEPII, EPFL, PSE, Utrecht, ICRIOS-Bocconi, and 
GREThA-Université Bordeau.

The first edition of the workshop will be on November 28, 2018, in Paris (CEPII 
premises<>). Other cities will follow 
(Utrecht (Spring 2019), Milan (Spring 2020) and Bordeaux (Fall 2020)).

The call for papers is now open (until September 16) and available 
here<> and in attached pdf.
Each workshop will consist of a 1-day plenary session with presentations and 
discussions, opened up by a keynote speaker. The keynote speaker of the Paris 
workshop will be William 
Kerr<>, from Harvard 
Business School.

We aim to attract both senior and junior scholars dealing with research topics 
such as the role of high-skilled migration in fostering innovation in receiving 
countries, the relationship between diversity and innovation, the role of 
skilled diasporas and return migrants in diffusing knowledge back to their home 
countries, the emerging role of MNC in shaping scientists’ and engineers’ 
migration flows as well as temporary migration and knowledge sharing, migration 
and innovation-based start-ups formation, regions and mobility, and so forth.
Both full papers and extended abstracts (around 2-3 pages) can be submitted. 
Registration is free for all participants. Coffees, lunches and one social 
dinner will be offered by the organization. Travel and accommodation costs of 
one speaker per accepted paper will be covered by the organization depending on 
budget availability. Submissions will be peer-reviewed by the series organizers 
and the scientific committee, and around 10 papers will be accepted.

We'll be delighted if you can join us in Paris this November, as well as in the 
forthcoming cities.

Thank you for sharing this call among your network, and hope to see you soon!

All the best,



Ernest Miguelez
