After an  introduction  to  the  topic  and  the  discussion  of  constraints  to structural  transformation  and  development,  the  workshop  will  cover  different  areas  of  modern  applied  industrial  policy, focusing  in  particular  on  the  role  of  industrial  policy  in  open  economy,  on  innovation  and  education  policy  and  on  the challenges posed by international production networks and industry 4.0. Group discussion during the workshop will offer a possibilty of applying the theoretical notions and the empirical techniques presented.
