Call for papers/ research proposals


Multi-sided platforms challenge both economic policy and economic research in XXI century. Faculty of Economic Sciences invites academics, researchers and PhD students (including PhD program applicants) to discuss their research proposals as well as semi-finished papers devoted to economics of multi-sided platforms with Eduardo Pontual Ribeiro, professor of Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The objective of the workshop is to provide the participants with the feedbacks on their research proposals, semi-finished or finished papers.

The research workshop will review selected economic papers that develop theoretical and empirical models of economic analysis on multi-sided platforms with a focus on competition policy implications. The master class reviews the basic characteristics of the economics of platforms, such as cross-network effects and price structure and price level, and similarities and differences with vertical restraints analysis. Recent papers on self-preferencing and platforms are reviewed with avenues of research applications in different sectors.
