Analysis of the institutional aspect of innovation: research and innovation policies.


The reasoning of industrial economics and the economy of regulations now occupy a central place in the development of corporate strategies, their financial communication, the choice of the instruments of public policies and, in judicial arbitrations (commercial and regulatory disputes).


Industrial economics at Cerna is characterised a year inductive, problem-driven approach.
Research is initiated by case studies based on surveys in companies and administrations.
Such studies provide the basis for theoretical discussions and vice-versa.
