R&D Economics

R&D Economics zero in on the knowledge acquired in the development process, and the belief that it is of vital importance to economic growth. Deployed in several Ekonomikr projects, R&D studies focus on basic R&D, the tiny cogs that help machines run faster, and on industry-specific R&D. With years of experience in both types of R&D economics, Economikr is capable of making policy recommendations that can affect the economic growth of a nation. 

International Sectorial R&D Spillovers and Country Growth

This project involved the detailed analysis of a panel of OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) countries based on a 14-year time period. This important project focused on estimating investment in R&D according to specific sectors (private, university, and governmental), and their influence on each country’s growth. The study also referenced spillover effects, and determined how investment in R&D in the US affects GDP growth in France, and also on a global scale.  

R&D Investment in Israel – Directions and Policy

Performed under subcontract to Economic Models for the Israel Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor, this government-level project focused on R&D investments in Israel, with an emphasis on directions and policy. The project included evaluation of potential R&D investments and their effect on economic growth at the organizational level (e.g., a company who received a seed grant in its initial stages, was able to develop into a larger company, or alternatively, terminate business due to binding constraints).
