Summary

The 1st SAYS Congress aims to update the approaches of the history of economic thought in the fields of industrial revolutions and the sociotechnical paradigms, as well as to observe how national traditions, specific contexts, and epochs have marked the development of theory in these fields, to begin with the discussion of the theories of the 18th and 19th centuries and their extensions to the contemporary theories of sustainable development. It consists of 1) an international conference where the theories of Jean-Baptiste Say will be at the heart of scientific presentations and discussions; and 2) a summer school will give a specifical place to doctoral students and young researchers who works on entrepreneurship, innovation, growth and development of new economic and social practices (information and knowledge economy/society, social economy, etc.).

Argument

The financial and monetary crises that have repeatedly taken place since the early 1990s, and in particular the crisis in the euro zone, have brought to the forefront the issues of industrialisation, the place of goods and services industry within economies, innovation as well as economic and social progress. The 1st SAYS Congress aims to update the approaches of the history of economic thought in the fields of industrial revolutions and the sociotechnical paradigms and to observe how national traditions, specific contexts, and epochs have marked the development of theory in these fields, to begin with the discussion of the theories of the 18th and 19th centuries and their extensions to the contemporary theories of sustainable development.

List of the key topics of the First Jean-Baptiste Say International Congress:

  1. Theories and multiple realities of entrepreneurship: Jean-Baptiste Say, forerunner of the triumph of entrepreneur
  2. Theories of production and of the nature- production relations, from Jean-Baptiste Say to sustainable development
  3. The economic thinking of technical progress: from Classics to the systemic nature of innovation
  4. Innovation and economic cycles: industrial revolution by jumps or by a continuous process
  5. Histories of entrepreneurs and inventions or the application of science to economy: innovation
  6. Socio-technical paradigms throughout the industrial revolutions: from the big industry to the "new economy": economy of services, of information and knowledge economy, of environment...
  7. Industrial Revolution, changes at work and new forms of social organisation of production: from the labour society to the entrepreneurial society, what kind of solidarity, what sort of creativity?
  8. Industrial Revolutions and location of innovative activities: effects of proximity, agglomeration, scale, variety, diffusion, appropriation and accumulation
  9. Drivers of (re)industrialisation and socio-economic transition: new activities, social change, active policies (coercive or support)?

Organization

The first International Congress Jean-Baptiste Say is open to researchers and gives a substantial place to the works of doctoral students. It consists of 1) an international conference where the theories of Jean-Baptiste Say will be at the heart of scientific presentations and discussions; and 2) a summer school will give a specifical place to doctoral students and young researchers who works on entrepreneurship, innovation, growth and development of new economic and social practices (information and knowledge economy/society, social economy, etc.).

The Congress will feature plenary sessions with invited speakers, special sessions around key themes, poster sessions specifically dedicated to early-stage doctoral students. A round table will conclude the three days. These four days will be accompanied with cultural events to extend the discussions in a relaxed atmosphere. The Saturday August 30th will be exclusively dedicated to cultural activities.
