OIO is an Advanced Grant ERC project (2014), led by Patrick Legros (ECARES, Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management)

Patrick Legros received an ERC Advanced to develop a new industrial organization theory, based on a richer view of the firm in which non-trivial conflicts of interest between shareholders, workers, managers and consumers will shape firm boundaries.
This "Organizational Industrial Organization" (OIO) theory will generate new insights concerning the positive and normative analysis of industries, independently of whether firms in these industries have market power, while at the same time contributing to a new understanding of such fundamental concepts as the determinants of a company's size and product range, or the dynamics of mergers and divestitures. OIO will also address less traditional questions such as the impact of managerial labor markets, finance or corporate governance on industry performance.
End of the project: 31/12/2019
