As advancements across network industries take shape and public policymakers race to keep up with today’s dynamic marketplace, a group of distinguished academics gathered this May at NYU Stern for the Sixth Annual NET Institute Conference. Co-sponsored by the Networks, Electronic Commerce and Telecommunications (NET) Institute and Stern’s Entertainment, Media and Technology Program, this year’s conference featured new research on Internet search and advertising; digital rights, privacy and two-sided pricing; and open source, open standards, beta versions and entrepreneurship presented by thought leaders from worldwide academic institutions including NYU Stern, Columbia University, Harvard Business School and the Indian School of Business.

“The NET Institute is a focal point of research and network communities, giving away some $200K in research grants each year,” said Professor Nicholas Economides, executive director of the NET Institute. “This year, we supported 45 researchers studying a wide array of network industries. And this year’s conference served as an opportunity to delve into a select group of those studies, igniting dialogue among field experts about a number of areas influencing network economics today.”
