2021 EALE Labour Economics Prize awarded to José Azar
IESE professor José Azar and co-authors won the European Association of Labour Economists' 2021 Labour Economics Prize for their paper “Concentration in US labor markets: Evidence from online vacancy data.” The prize judges noted: “It is a great paper that can have an important impact on the growing literature measuring firms’ degree of market concentration.”
Business & environment: Pietro Bonetti in Science
IESE professor Pietro Bonetti is the co-author of a new article, titled “Large-Sample Evidence on the Impact of Unconventional Oil and Gas Development on Surface Waters,” published in the August 2021 edition of Science. The article finds that hydraulic fracturing, better known as fracking, is linked to higher salt concentration in surface waters and concludes that additional studies are needed to fully understand the environmental impact of fracking.
Gender & innovation: Sampsa Samila in Science
IESE professor Sampsa Samila is the co-author of “Who do we invent for? Patents by women focus more on women's health, but few women get to invent,” an article published in the prestigious scientific journal Science. After analyzing more than 430,000 U.S. biomedical patents filed between 1976 and 2010, the authors find that all-female inventor teams are 35% more likely to focus on women's health than all-male teams.
