Prof. Kiese represented RUB at the annual meeting of the Microeconomics of Competitiveness (MOC) Affiliate Network’s European Chapter in the Polish capitol, Warsaw. Prof. Marzenna Waresa of the Warsaw School of Economics took over the lead of the Chapter for the Academic Year of 2018/2019. During the meeting on 11 September, some 20 network members updated each other about their research and teaching activities and discussed possibilities to deepen their co-operation in these fields, as well as to increase the Chapter’s visibility and impact. The meeting was preceded by a full-day international scientific conference on accomplishments and challenges of the European Union’s innovation agenda (“Innovation Union”).

As one outcome of the Chapter meeting, MOC at RUB will once again benefit from an attractive mix of guest instructors leading individual case discussions during the winter semester. The graduate course “Microeconomics of Competitiveness: Firms, Clusters and Economic Development” is based on materials developed by Prof Michael E Porter and his team at Harvard Business School (HBS). It will be held every Monday from 14-17 hrs c.t. from 08 October. Registration is open by email stating name, programme and matriculation number until 30 September, 2018. Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
