NWO Open Competition Grant awarded to Enrico Perotti and Eric Bartelsman
Research fellows Enrico Perotti (University of Amsterdam) and Eric Bartelsman (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam) have been granted funding for their research project 'Understanding the role of IT progress and globalization in economic growth' in the NWO Open Competition - Social Sciences and Humanities.
Understanding the role of IT progress and globalization in economic growth
A slowing global economy and steady rise in inequality are threatening social cohesion. The project investigates the role of IT progress and globalization in causing unequal economic growth, and explains puzzling trends in capital and labor markets. It will guide a sustainable policy for economic and financial stability.
The aim of the Open Competition – SSH is to facilitate excellent, non-programmed, curiosity-driven research that primarily addresses a social sciences or humanities research question and research problem.
