Resilience and Ingenuity: Global Innovation Responses to Covid-19
The Covid-19 pandemic has profoundly affected the ecosystems that spur innovation and creativity around the world. Innovators faced demand shocks, heightened uncertainty, far-reaching supply disruptions and a radical shift in the demand for new technologies. How did they respond?

A new eBook published by CEPR untangles how the Covid-19 shock shaped the innovation landscape of the world’s major economies, and how scientists, entrepreneurs and creative professionals responded to the crisis. The eBook’s 19 chapters – authored by institutional and academic economists – paint a picture of resilience and ingenuity. They not only document that innovation was at the centre of addressing the public health emergency, but also how the Covid-19 shock has unleashed a new entrepreneurship wave driven by digital technologies that has reshaped economic activity.

Join us for the virtual launch of this book, where the editors will present a brief overview of the findings followed by commentary from Jonathan Haskel and Bronwyn Hall and a live discussion.
