The diffusion of new technologies and ideas, infectious diseases and financial shocks has implications for behavior, human welfare and economic growth. A key element in the diffusion process is the network of ties among individual entities, i.e. consumers, firms, countries and banks. The agent’s position in the network and the structural properties of the network are crucial determinants of agents’ behavior. The aim of this workshop is to bring together an interdisciplinary group of theoretical and empirical researchers on networks to lay out a collaborative agenda for future research and identify a set of issues to prioritize in empirical work.
