Néstor Duch-Brown

I joined the JRC in 2012 and since then I've been involved in research on the Digital Economy. I focus on the quantification of the economic impact of digital and ICT technologies, including the supply side (productivity, growth and firm level innovation), the demand side (e-commerce, social networks, consumer behavior, welfare gains) and property rights (privacy and IPR, particularly copyright).

Previously, I was a lecturer in applied economics at the University of Barcelona and researcher at the Barcelona Institute of Economics for 12 years. My research was oriented towards innovation policy evaluation, analysis of competition and market structure for many industries and the economics of higher education.
