Description

REMARC is active, through its external collaborations, on smaller projects covering more specific focus areas. Currently, we have two ongoing areas of inquiry:

  • Responsible Innovation: we seek to investigate the reasons underpinning the emergence and ban of harmful innovations and to study the geography of harmful and green technologies.
  • Science evaluation, asymmetric information, and science integrity. We study in which way the scientific committees’ composition is relevant for a number of outcomes, including the gender gap and the probability of giving credit to publications of dubious quality.
