Research Activities

Publications listed on: the Télécom Bretagne Web site, citations on Google Scholar

My main research is in the traditions of the innovation economics, and more specifically of the knowledge economics (Foray 2004) and the industrial economics.

It focuses on the interactions between institutions and collective non-market production (like free software, Wikipedia): how the economics theory can explain their emergence, how these collectives impact industries (business models, organization of the work), how the participation of such institutions to the collective production impact their goal and organization.
