*Innovation, Global Value Chains, and Globalization Measurement—A Workshop*

NOVEMBER 5-6, 2020 (*)

Washington, DC

*A workshop hosted by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and
Medicine, *

*and funded by the National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics, *

*within the National Science Foundation*

In recent decades, production processes of final products have been
increasingly fragmented across countries in what are called global value
chains (GVCs). While National Statistical Organizations collect a great
deal of information on economic performance, trade, employment, and foreign
direct investment, this information cannot always be used to quantify the
international linkages and flows that characterize these cross-border
transactions, especially those related to research and development (R&D) or
software. NASEM will hold a workshop to address measurement needs and
related gaps in the theory on globalization of research and development and
publish a proceedings volume summarizing the workshop discussions.

To inform the work of the Innovation Policy Forum, an ad hoc planning
committee under the oversight of the Board on Science, Technology, and
Economic Policy (STEP), in cooperation with the Committee on National
Statistics (CNSTAT), will organize a two-day workshop to improve the
understanding, measurement, and valuation of global value chains. The
workshop will draw on the expertise of recognized experts on economics,
industrial organization, trade, other social sciences; accounting and
taxation of multinational enterprises; and statistics, along with the
perspectives of personnel of national statistical offices.

*Call for Papers*

The organizing committee seeks papers addressing conceptual or empirical
exploratory papers focusing on the globalization of innovation intangible
