BIBU Talk August 9.

How High-Skilled Migration Shapes Business, Economy & Society


Thursday August 9 at 4.30 pm
Tiedekulma, Fönsteri-space (Yliopistonkatu 4)

Innovation is becoming increasingly concentrated in talent clusters in advanced and emerging economies.

BIBU Talk by professor William R. Kerr considers the economics and policies behind this rise in the importance of talent clusters, how leading firms can respond to these global opportunities and challenges, and how countries compete in the accelerating race for talent. While the talk will consider possible U.S. immigration reform for high-skilled immigration, most discussion will focus on business implications for European firms and economies.

Kerr is a professor at Harvard Business School, where he is faculty chair of the Launching New Ventures program for executive education and the author of the book The Gift of Global Talent: How Migration Shapes Business, Economy & Society.

BIBU Talk is chaired by Mika Maliranta, Research Director of the Research Institute of the Finnish Economy (ETLA). Maliranta is directing the work package ”Behind Biases and Bubbles: Structural Changes in Global Flux” in the BIBU project.
