The innovation seminar is open to graduate students, faculty, and visitors from Economics, Haas, ARE, and other departments in the university who have an interest in the economics of innovation, technical change, and intellectual property. Here are some lists of past presentations:

I encourage presentation by graduate students in early stages of research, and have occasionally had students present discussion of a set of papers by others on a specific topic that is of general interest to the group.
