The Governance and Regulation Chair of the University Paris-Dauphine|PSL has one opening for a doctoral candidate in economics and management. Applicants must have a solid background in economics (industrial organization, digital economics) or in management (strategy and organization) and be familiar with applied (qualitative and quantitative) analysis.
The doctoral research will focus on the economics and management of data-sharing. Data sharing between stakeholders of an ecosystems or of a value chain is considered as a major driver of productivity gains and innovation, as well as essential to guarantee sustainability. Sensitive data (e.g. personal information, industrial or commercial secrets, etc.) may however be used against the interests of the parties concerned, or even against the general interest. For these reasons, the intervention of intermediaries or the development of specific organizational arrangements between the stakeholders are necessary to organize, protect, anonymize, secure the shared data, and to frame how it can be relied upon to produce value-added services. The purpose of the doctoral research will be to explore the alternative organizational arrangements and flows of services to be pooled or exchanged in the aim of deriving value from the data, and redistributing the later among the stakeholders of the ecosystem. This implies analyzing how to encourage the producers of primary data to share it, how this information or the services it produces may be made available to the stakeholders and/or third parties, and, finally, how the knowledge and value that can be extracted from the data is shared.
The doctoral candidate will be working in the context of a research partnership between researchers in economics and management and data-scientists, which will contribute to the development of a research at the frontier of research in both domains. The position will be funded by the program “Dauphine Digital” that support such a cooperation. The doctoral research will also benefit from research programs already established with players in energy, mobility, and health ecosystems.
