‘CIMR Research in Brief’ video series: Prof Simona Iammarino on the economics of rare metals

We are delighted to introduce a new video in our ‘CIMR Research in Brief’ video series.

Professor Simona Iammarino talks about her research on the economics of rare metals, published as a CIMR Working Paper: https://eprints.bbk.ac.uk/id/eprint/4.

Rare metals (RMs) have become a material basis for advanced technological change: this relationship is particularly strong for emerging fields such as semiconductors, nanotechnology and green energy technologies. This study contributes to the understanding of how technological dynamics are shaped by the availability of natural resources with technological criticality.

Simona is Professor at the University of Cagliari (Italy) and former Professor of Economic Geography in the Department of Geography and Environment at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Simona is a visiting fellow at the Centre for Innovation Management Research (CIMR).
