Fifth Worskhop on Global Value Chains.
Updating our Knowledge on Global Value Chains.

Manlio Rossi-Doria Centre for Economic and Social Research, Roma Tre University
Department of Economics, Roma Tre University

The study of Global Value Chains (GVCs) is one of the best ways to fully understand the modern organisation of production processes and international trade. The increasing importance of GVCs has also significant implications at the national and regional levels. Understanding the factors that shape the patterns of GVCs, and the interplay of their occurrence at macro, meso and micro levels, are key topics for researchers, policy makers and firms alike.
To this end, the Centro Rossi-Doria and the Department of Economics organize the Fifth Workshop on Global Value Chains: Updating our Knowledge on Global Value Chains to be held at Roma Tre University, in Rome on the 22 and 23 March 2018. The aim of this two-days Workshop is to bring together researchers working on GVC topics to present and discuss their ongoing research. The focus of the Workshop is on the discussion of the organization, firms’ performance and policies of GVCs after the trade collapse.

Scientific Committee: Anna Giunta (Roma Tre University and Rossi-Doria Centre), Silvia Nenci (Roma Tre University and Rossi-Doria Centre), Carlo Pietrobelli (Roma Tre University, Rossi-Doria Centre and UNU-MERIT), Luca Salvatici (Roma Tre University and Rossi-Doria Centre), Tim Sturgeon (MIT Industrial Performance Center), Daria Taglioni (The World Bank Group)

Keynote Speaker: Tim Sturgeon, MIT Industrial Performance Center (IPC)

Timothy J. Sturgeon came to MIT from the University of California at Berkeley, where he was a Research Specialist at the Berkeley Roundtable on the International Economy for five years while earning his PhD in Economic Geography. He is co-organizer of the Global Value Chains Initiative and a Research Fellow at the Institute for Technology, Enterprise, and Competitiveness at the Doshisha Management School in Kyoto, Japan. Dr. Sturgeon has also been a Research Associate at MIT, and has served as Executive Director of the IPC’s Globalization Study and the Globalization Research Director for the International Motor Vehicle Program at the Center for Technology, Policy and Industrial Development.

Dr. Sturgeon’s research focuses on the process of global integration, with an emphasis on offshoring and outsourcing practices in the electronics and automotive industries. He is interested in both the distinctive and common aspects of industries and places, and the implications of these for economic performance, employment, technological learning, and industrial upgrading. He has made significant contributions to Global Value Chain (GVC) theory, and is working to improve the metrics and methods available for globalization research.
