October 16, 2019 – William Robson, President and CEO of the C.D. Howe Institute, announces the re-appointment of Marcel Boyer as a Research Fellow.

“Marcel is a deep thinker on a remarkable range of policy-relevant topics,” said Robson. “His insights on competition, intellectual property and the transferring and sharing of risk are among the many contributions he has made to the C.D. Howe Institute’s work.”

“The C.D. Howe Institute has been over the years an exceptional place for out-of-the-box ideas and discussions on a broad range of issues with significant impacts on public policies in Canada and elsewhere,” said Boyer.

Author and co-author of over 275 scientific articles and papers and public and private reports, Professor Boyer currently conducts research in the areas of investment valuation (risk, flexibility and real options); efficient organizations, innovation and competition (competitive social-democracy); public policy; and law and economics (cartels, environmental issues, intellectual property rights). Marcel Boyer has acted as expert economist on behalf of several national and international corporations and government organizations, and has testified as expert witness before various organizations, courts, and tribunals.

An Officer of the Order of Canada, Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, and Honorary Fellow of the Canadian Economics Association, Marcel Boyer held the Bell Canada Chair in Industrial Economics at the Université de Montréal and the Jarislowsky-SSHRC-NSERC Chair in Technology and International Competition of École Polytechnique de Montréal. He was CEO of CIRANO, Vice-President and Chief Economist of the Montreal Economic Institute, and President of the Canadian Economics Association.
