A meeting of the entire team of the International Laboratory for Intangible-driven Economy (ID Lab) is taking place at HSE Perm. Professors have arrived from three foreign universities. The arrival of the foreign staff signals the beginning of a series of research seminars. The laboratory’s leading researchers will set out their ideas for the development of each sector. They intend to discuss several projects for articles in each of the lab’s areas of research.
Director of ID Lab, Professor Angel Barajas is from the University of Vigo in Spain. He has been working with HSE perm since 2010 and is one of the leading specialists in evaluating football clubs, corporate finances and intellectual assets.
Carlos Fernandez-Jardon Fernandez, Professor of Econometrics, also at the University of Vigo, is in charge of ID Lab research into the behaviour of small and medium businesses. Besides knowing all the latest methods of quantitative data analysis, he has a whole row of publications on research into small and medium companies in developing markets which is of particular interest in Russia.
Professor at Valladolid University Felix Iturriaga leads ID Lab’s research into corporate finances, corporate management, and problems in large public companies. He has published many articles on the subject in top journals.
Professor Dennis Coates of the University of Maryland leads research at ID Lab on the economics of sport. He has published a great deal on the subject and will be making an analysis of intangible assets in sport and how to find and evaluate them. This could prove a highly relevant area of research with Russia becoming a major host to world sporting events.
The International Laboratory for Intangible-driven Economy grew out of a research group working on empirical corporate finances, intangible assets and intellectual capital. In 2010 there were just three academics working on the project. In 2013 international partners joined in (including the University of Vigo) and the size of the group has grown to 10 people.
