Although there is a substantial body of literature examining the impact of innovation on agricultural productivity, there is limited empirical evidence regarding the effects of digitalisation, particularly in relation to livestock farming. This lack of literature may be due to the unavailability of farm-level data. We employ accounting data from pig farmers to estimate total factor productivity using the control function approach. Then, we examine the various factors that affect the productivity growth of farmers, such as ICT investments, farm size, and the age of the farmers.

Only in exceptional cases, scholars carrying out research and innovation in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) systematically consider diversity of human beings. This has severe consequences, such as worse medical treatments or unfit security provisions for women, older citizens, people with minority backgrounds, and others. Scholars carrying out Inclusive Research and Innovation (IRI) in STEM can overcome these challenges. They explore and exploit the potential of diversity in the broad sense, i.e., gender, age, socio-economic background, sexual orientation etc., to drive scientific discovery and innovation. Using this approach, scholars would thoroughly address ethical issues of discrimination and economic issues of welfare losses. To conceptualise IRI in STEM, we combine the concepts of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) and midstream modulation (MM). RRI addresses values and stakeholders' involvement – yet only in very general terms. MM concentrates more concretely on participation of stakeholders. By combining them, we provide a concept integrating diversity and inclusion in research and innovation processes. To carry out IRI, STEM scholars would have to change the way they ask their research questions, address them methodologically as well as report and implement the resulting insights. To include knowledge regarding sex, gender and diversity analysis, STEM scholars would have to collaborate with Social Sciences and Humanities scholars in an interdisciplinary way. To systematically include values from of citizens with diverse backgrounds in research and innovation processes and outcomes, scholars would have to collaborate with relevant stakeholders from outside academia (e.g., firms, special interest and civic society's groups) in a transdisciplinary way.

International trade is highly imbalanced both in terms of values and in terms of embodied carbon emissions. We show that the persistent current value trade imbalance patterns contribute to a higher level of global emissions compared to a world of balanced international trade. Specifically, we build a Ricardian quantitative trade model including sectoral input-output linkages, trade imbalances, fossil fuel extraction, and carbon emissions from fossil fuel combustion and use this framework to simulate counterfactual changes to countries' trade balances. For individual countries, the emission effects of removing their trade imbalances depend on the carbon intensities of their production and consumption patterns, as well as on their fossil resource abundance. Eliminating the Qatari trade surplus and the US trade deficit would lead to the largest environmental benefits in terms of lower global emissions. Globally, the simultaneous removal of all trade imbalances would lower world carbon emissions by 0.62 percent or 184 million tons of carbon dioxide.

The Centre of Policy Studies (CoPS) offers an intensive one-week course introducing participants to the equations and data structure of TERM, a multiregional CGE model. It will be hosted by the Austrian Institute of Economic Research (WIFO) in Vienna. The theory of TERM and introductory computer exercises are worked through using TERM-USA, an implementation of TERM for USA. Group projects will use EuroTERM, an implementation of TERM for Europe. The course provides participants with extensive hands-on experience with the GEMPACK software used to solve CGE models.

Euroconstruct and EIB, host of the 95th EC-Conference kindly invite to the summer update of the European construction market forecast conference on 8 to 9 June 2023 in Amsterdam. Key issues to be addressed: (1) How will Europe's construction sector cope with rising prices and interest rates? (2) What are the likely economic scenarios for the next few years? (3) Will energy prices continue to drive investment in sustainability? These questions and many more will be discussed at the 95th Euroconstruct Conference on 9 June 2023. The programme includes presentations by leading economists and construction experts from the network, as well as a panel discussion with construction insiders and policymakers. All participants are invited to the networking pre-event on 8 June 2023.
