Previous conferences: The first meeting took place in Grenoble (France) in 1999 organised by Paolo Saviotti, the second meeting in Vienna (Austria) in 2001 organised by Werner Hölzl, and the third meeting in Augsburg (Germany) organised by Andreas Pyka. The previous conferences have led to the publication of the following books in a special series by Edward Elgar: Paolo Saviotti (ed.) (2003), Applied Evolutionary Economics; John Foster & Werner Hölzl (eds.) (2004), Applied Evolutionary Economics and Complex Systems; Horst Hanusch & Andreas Pyka (eds.) (2005), Applied Evolutionary Economics and The Knowledge Based Economy. For more information see also the Edward Elgar website.
Next conference: The 5th EMAEE will be hosted by Paul Windrum from the Manchester Metropolitan University Business School

About EMAEE: The objective of the European Meetings on Applied Evolutionary Economics is to bring together researchers with an interest in the empirical application of evolutionary economics. We aim at a fruitful exchange of the latest methods and tools in evolutionary approaches to economic change. The meetings take place bi-annually. EMAEE is not an organisation and does not have members.
