Note: I am not involved with organizing this; I am just reposting an announcement I saw.
If you're interested in the economics of innovation -- and are an economics PhD student or recent grad -- there is an innovation research bootcamp (funded by Open Phil, actually) being held alongside the NBER Summer Institute this year. Deadline to apply is Jan 20.
From the announcement:
The NBER, with generous support from Open Philanthropy, will host the inaugural Innovation Research Boot Camp (IRBC) in Cambridge, MA in July 2022. The broad goal of this initiative is to encourage young scholars to carry out research on the economics of innovation and innovation policy.
Participation: The boot camp will include around 25 participants, who may be Ph.D. students or recent Ph.Ds. who are faculty members or affiliates of non-academic research institutions. To be eligible to attend, participants must have completed at least one year of Ph.D. coursework in economics or a closely-related field, such as financial economics.
