The OECD Spatial Productivity Lab (SPL) is a dedicated research laboratory that works with local and global partners to advance knowledge about the ways regional policy and a better understanding of spatial links can improve productivity growth and thereby the creation of better jobs and well-being.

The OECD Spatial Productivity Lab is a part of the OECD Trento Centre for Local Development, which is an integral part of the OECD Centre for Entrepreneurship, SMEs, Regions and Cities. The mission of the Trento Centre is to build capacities for local development in OECD member and non-member countries, working directly with policy makers at all levels of government.

Swedish Entrepreneurship Forum

Swedish Entrepreneurship Forum is the founder of the most prestigious international research prize in the field: Global Award for Entrepreneurship Research.

 

Focus of this meeting

Business incentives and firm entry: The past, the present and the future

The effectiveness of business incentives is a subject of debate among researchers but is a popular tool of supporting regional and local economic development. This seminar will offer different perspectives on the link (established in the past) between policy-mandated business support and new firm entry. The differing points of view will serve as a background for a roundtable discussion among academics and practitioners on the ways to make incentives more effective, to bridge academic research and policy practice and to boost firm formation during and after the pandemic.

Participation

The event is open to civil society and all people interested in the topic upon free registration.
