Nurturing knowledge? The impact of funding and family on scientific performance

Professor Aldo Geuna (Department of Economics and Statistics Cognetti de Martiis, University of Torino, Italy)

11. December 2019, 4:30 – 6 pm, Campus Center, Seminarraum 6 (Raum 1124), Universität Kassel

In his talk Aldo Geuna introduces a new approach to assess the impact of funding on productivity, controlling for gender and family related characteristics less frequently examined in the literature. This approach was developed on the basis of very detailed information for a sample of 262 academics over a ten-year period. A research team at the University of Torino, Italy, found that funding is not only associated with higher research productivity.
