NBER Science and Engineering Workforce Project

Among all workers, scientists, mathematicians, and engineers are believed to have a disproportionately strong impact on the growth and prosperity of an economy. How society provides training, incentives, and jobs to such individuals therefore merits special attention.

The Science and Engineering Workforce Project (SEWP) based at the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) is a network of labor economists and other researchers studying the professional development, deployment, and productivity of scientists, engineers, and highly skilled technical workers. Set up in 2001 with funding from the Sloan Foundation, the Project is directed by Professors Richard Freeman and Daniel Goroff of Harvard University.

SEWP in cooperation with Harvard's Dept of Economics and the Technology and Operations Management Unit (TOM) at Harvard Business School, hold a joint seminar on the Economics of Science & Engineering which meets primarily at the Harvard Business School where it is known as the Science-Based Business Seminar
