Em Abril desse ano ocorrerá a segunda edição do Encontro de Economia de Jovens Pesquisadores IE/UNICAMP & IE/UFRJ. O encontro visa propiciar um espaço para divulgação e debate de projetos de pesquisa no campo da economia heterodoxa de alunos de mestrado e doutorado, a fim de promover a interação entre jovens pesquisadores, que muitas vezes desconhecem projetos de pesquisa fora de seu centro de estudo, bem como incentivar o debate entre as linhas de pesquisa dos dois centros.

Alunos de mestrado e doutorado do IE/Unicamp e IE/UFRJ interessados em participar do encontro deverão submeter inicialmente um resumo expandido. Os resumos serão selecionados pelo comitê composto por dois professores de cada centro. Depois de selecionados os resumos, os trabalhos completos deverão ser enviados seguindo o cronograma estabelecido. Cada aluno selecionado deverá apresentar seu artigo e comentar o artigo de outro participante. Preferencialmente, apresentador(a) e comentador(a) deverão pertencer a centros diferentes para estimular a interação entre os centros.

A segunda edição do evento ocorrerá no Instituto de Economia da UFRJ, no Rio de Janeiro. A organização do encontro buscará acomodar os alunos do centro visitante (UNICAMP) com trabalhos aceitos em residências dos alunos do centro sede (UFRJ). Há também a possibilidade de ser oferecido auxílio financeiro para os alunos do centro visitante (UNICAMP).

Datas Importantes
Submissão dos resumos: Até o dia 28/02/2019
Divulgação dos trabalhos aceitos: 31/03/2019
Envio dos trabalhos completos: 21/04/2019
Realização do evento: 25 e 26/04/2019

I Rio PhD Forum on Complexity Economics and Economics of Innovation 
imgevento 392e8

The Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), the Young Scholars Initiative’s Complexity Economics Working Group (YSI - CEWG) and the Latin American Network for Economics of Learning, Innovation and Competence Building Systems (LALICS) invite you to submit a proposal paper to the 1st PhD Forum on Complexity Economics and Economics of Innovation, that will be placed at the Economics Institute of UFRJ, in Rio de Janeiro, from 18th to 19th, February, 2019.  

This activity is part of the “Summer Course on Model-Based Macroeconomics” (link:

• Models of complex economic systems
• Agent-based models
• Applications of economic, ecological, or social networks
• Innovation and technological change
• Input-Output analyses and related methods
• Structural decomposition analysis 

In the forum, mentors and senior scholars are supposed to give feedback to the students, reading previously their work and raising comments during presentations. The audience will consist of PhD students and young scholars (5 years since earning a PhD degree). Students are going to be grouped by research topic, presenting their work in parallel sessions. Each parallel session will be compounding by 4 presentations (20 minutes each) with time for feedback and questions reserved for mentors and the audience.  

We benefit from the opportunity of having a considerable part of the local scientific community reunited in the “Rio’s Summer Course on Model-Based Macroeconomics” main event, which starts right after the Forum. We would like to give students the opportunity present their theses in a friendly and stimulating environment. 

Students and other young scholars are invited to submit a paper, a research proposal or a summarized version of the thesis. Send us a summary with size between 2000 to 6000 words. The paper selection follows a blind review method. The major prerequisites for acceptance are completeness and relatedness to the required topics. Submitted work will most likely be considered if it is fully readable and does not lack substantial sections. We encourage students to send their abstract in English. 

Financial support is available, although resources are scarce. Please indicate the need for funding in the application. In case of acceptance, organizers will contact with details about amount granted.

The Research Group in Political Economy at the Institute of Economics of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro follows the Sraffian project proposed by Garegnani to make the Keynesian-Kaleckian principle of effective demand compatible with the classical surplus approach. For our group, growth is demand-led and policy (and often balance of payments) constrained. In turn, inflation is a cost-push political economy phenomenon that depends on conflicting claims over income distribution. In this framework, macroeconomic policies are important to growth, inflation and income distribution. In capitalist economies, these policies stem from institutional arrangements and political power relations.

The process of economic development implies not only changes in productive techniques, sectoral dynamics and institutions, but above all in power relations between social groups. The relationship between the State and the markets in the development process is a persistent issue that runs through the very origin of political economy. National strategies led by development-oriented states are specifically geared to creating modern industry and services and its infrastructure as the main engines of economic growth. The State has also a major role to play in promoting technological change, through public demand for innovation and coordination between horizontal and vertical policies.

The Research Group in Political Economy considers that the soundness of this theoretical approach is best demonstrated by constructing policy-relevant analysis and both theoretical and applied models in order to understand the actual performance of developed and developing economies.

Given the approach taken by the Group and in the context of the intensification of dialogue and convergence among some Kaleckians, Kaldorians and Sraffians, the main idea of the workshop is to strengthen this promising trend by promoting a constructive and policy-relevant debate among these strands of critical thought (to which other heterodox approaches to economics are more than welcome) on new contributions concerning demand-led growth analyses and models and their multiple relations with structural change and income distribution.

Articles that broadly fall within the following topics are welcome:

- Demand-led growth: theoretical and empirical studies;

- Cost-push and conflict inflation: theoretical and empirical studies;

- The role of macroeconomic policies in demand-led growth;

- Macroeconomic policies, personal and functional Income distribution and conflict inflation;

-Structural change and the role of technical progress: theoretical and empirical studies;

- Political Economy and Comparative Development Experiences: theoretical and empirical studies.

Papers must be written in English and contain title, short abstract (maximum 200 words), author's name, institutional affiliation and email address.

We recommend submitted papers to have a maximum number of 8000 words.
