David Teece, a renowned economist and one of the top-10 cited scholars in the last decades, gives his lecture on innovation management announcing new postgraduate scholarship

Sant’Anna School 30th anniversary celebrations will close with a seminar on Management, Innovation and Organization scheduled for Monday, November 20. The seminar will feature David Teece, professor of Business Administration at University of California, Berkeley. David Teece, an authority on matters of industrial organization, technological change and innovation, will discuss innovation management, strategic planning and competitive performance of firms in the global marketplace and explore their ability to adapt to changing markets demands. The seminar will be held in the auditorium “Rino Ricci” - Camera di Commercio, Pisa, piazza Vittorio Emanuele II.

Dr. Teece has a Ph.D. in economics and has held teaching and research positions at Stanford University and Oxford University. He has authored over 30 books, 200 scholarly papers and received seven honorary doctorates. He has worked on several matters in industries ranging from software to petroleum.

The seminar gives the opportunity to present a new postgraduate scholarship offered by Sant’Anna School Institute of Management to recognise Dr. Teece’s exceptional academic ability and commitment. Dr. Teece has over 20 years of active cooperation with Sant’Anna School since when he invited Professor Riccardo Varaldo, economist at Sant’Anna, to give lectures in Berkley.

The event program includes Rector Pierdomenico Perata and Andrea Piccaluga, director of the Institute of Management, giving their openinig remarks. Fabio Iraldo, professor of economics and management at Sant’Anna School, will present the new scholarship program to support management postgraduate students. David Teece, as one of the developers of the dynamic capabilities concept, will focus on the strategies for success in business - how competencies should be used to create long-term competitive advantage in response to rapidly changing business conditions. His theories, as to why firms simply cannot transact in markets for know-how in a way that would enable them to transfer and capture full value from their knowledge assets, attempted an answer to explain why firms might internalize transactions and to solve problems associated with  identifying trading opportunities to adapt to radical discontinuous change.

The final panel discussion will be moderated by Alberto di Minin, professor of economics and management at Sant’Anna School and an expert collaborating with the Sole 24 Ore Nòva. Participants and keynote speakers who have confirmed their attendance include: Massimo De Benedetti (Fincantieri), Gioia Ghezzi (Ferrovie dello Stato), Alberto Pastore (Società Italiana di Management - SIMA), Riccardo Varaldo (Sant’Anna School), Gianmario Verona (Università Bocconi).

The event is free and open to the public.
