Introduction

The annual report 2006 of the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration of the Vrije Universiteit describes the research programmes and research output of the members of the Faculty in 2006.

The first section gives a brief overview of the Faculty research output mostly expressed in tables while the second section describes the individual research programmes and gives an overview of all the publications subdivided in academic publications (journal articles, book chapters, books and monographs) and professional publications.

Many researchers of the faculty are member of the editorial board of national and

international journals and are member of important scientific committees (such as NWO-committees).

These and other details on the academic reputation of the researchers are also described in the first and second section.

Organization of Research

Research Policy

The Faculty of Economics and Business Administration maintains a system of

assessment of the research output of its members of staff that enables the (re)distribution of research funding according to individual achievements. The system comprises the rating of the five best publications of a researcher over the past five years, based on a journals- and publishers list (see enclosures). It was faculty’s policy to ask only for the five best publications, and not all the publications in order to give a proper incentive to researchers.

The periodic reallocation of research funding used to take place every five years. Starting 2005, however, the procedure will be followed every three years, to allow more dynamics and to align with the national agenda for internal and external research assessments. As of 2008, the procedure will take place every year.

Through its system of allocation of research funding (expressed in full time equivalents) the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration seeks to emphasise quality. This policy has proven effective, as over the years an increasing number of researchers acceded to publishers and journals of international standard.

The faculty also strives after transparency through objective rules and a clear classification system that acknowledges the various fields covered by the faculty's research. Both book and journal contributions are appreciated provided that they are based on research. To enable easy access to research funding for junior staff, dissertations are classified as B.

The allocation of research funding

The research funding is meant for members of the scientific staff with an appointment on the account of the university ("eerste geldstroom") or on a structural externally funded position. PhD students and post-docs are not entitled to research funding, other than the funding agreed upon at the start of their contract.

Entitlements to research funding are expressed in percentages of full time equivalents. A maximum of 60 per cent can be allocated. The percentage obtained ought to be multiplied with the employment factor (wtf) and reduced by possible budget cuts, to arrive at the number of working hours to be dedicated to research.

Tenure Track

On January, 1 2005 a tenure track system has been introduced. This system will guarantee new members of staff a minimum of hours to be dedicated to research. In order to increase the quality of the scientific staff of FEWEB and to further the career possibilities of young talented scientists within our faculty, young scientists will get the opportunity to spend 0,4 fte of their full-time position to do research during a period of 5 years. This allotment of research time will make it easier for them to make a next move in their career, which could be a permanent appointment as assistant professor 1 or as

(5)

associate professor (tenure). The career move depends on performance during the five-year period.

PhD students and Research Fellows

Business PhD students are recruited on the basis of open competition; a decisive selection criterion is the academic quality of the candidates. Once accepted, the PhD students and their supervisors write a plan with regard to their training and supervision, covering the four years of their contract. Progress reports are written at least once a year, allowing the faculty to monitor the process of writing and the academic development of the students. The students are encouraged to participate in conferences, to publish their results in international scientific journals and to develop relevant networks of professional contacts. After graduation, the faculty explicitly seeks to hold on to promising researchers by offering career perspectives. The allocation of research funds is based among others on the principle that productive researchers should be allowed room to exploit their talents. In most cases they can be offered a tenure position after a few years of temporary post-doc contracts.

As of 2005 PhD students (Eerste Geldstroom) in economics, econometrics and finance are recruited from the Tinbergen Institute (M.Phil programme). The M.Phil programme is a two-year research master in economics, econometrics, and finance, and is an excellent preparation for Ph.D. thesis research in these fields. The M.Phil programme is taught by the best researchers of the three economics departments participating in the institute and by internationally renowned guest lecturers. Students are carefully selected from a large international pool of applicants. Each year at most 30 students are admitted and thorough selection is part of the admission procedure. The M.Phil programme has been accredited by the Dutch and Flemish Accreditation Organisation for higher education (NVAO) and leads to a Master of Philosophy in Economics degree.

As of 2004 PhD students are given opportunities to teach and are advised to do so. Teaching is important for career development. The maximum teaching load is 10%. Table 1: Research staff at institutional level in fte in 2006 (including SOW)

The Award recognizes the potential of outstanding scholarship in Regional Science in an early career of a researcher working in a developing nation where there is a Section of RSAI (Regional Science Association International).

Dr. Robert Sparrow received the ‘KVS-award' for his dissertation.

The Koninklijke Vereniging voor de Staathuishoudkunde (KVS), the Dutch Royal Association for Political Economy gives out the award to the person who defended the best dissertation in Economics at a Dutch University. Robert Sparrow received the award and € 5.000 for his dissertation with the title “Health, education and economic crisis: Protecting the poor in Indonesia” which he defended on March 16 2006 at the VU. His supervisors were Prof.dr. J.W. Gunning and Dr. M.P. Pradhan.

Prof. Gerard van den Berg leading professor

Last year, the executive Board of the Vrije Universiteit has founded a fund to attract excellent professors. However, at the university itself there are also excellent profesors.

(7)

The faculty argued that it is as important to keep these professors as to attract such professors. That is why Professor Gerard van den Berg (dept of Economics) has been appointed as leading professor (tophoogleraar). This will enable him to spend more time on this research, to extend his research group and to give shape to his ambition to belong to the leading researchers in the world in the field of empirical micro economics. Drs. M. Kleinen wins best paper award for special issue Journal of Retailing. The paper “An Assessment of Value Creation in Mobile Service Delivery and the

Moderating Role of Time Consciousness,” co-authored with Mirella Kleijnen (Marketing department VU), Ko de Ruyter, and Martin Wetzels has won the award for best article in the special issue of the Journal of Retailing on “Competing Through Service”. Journal of Retailing is the oldest marketing journal with a longstanding reputation of high quality papers in the field of marketing, and retailing in particular.

The paper competition is sponsored by the prestigious Center for Services Leadership (CSL) at Arizona State University. The jury consisted of renowned scholars in the services marketing field:

• Dr. Ruth N. Bolton, Professor of Marketing, W. P. Carey Chair in Marketing, Arizona State University

• Dr. Mary Jo Bitner, Professor of Marketing, PetSmart Chair in Services Leadership, Arizona State University

• Dr. Dhruv Grewal, Professor of Marketing, Toyota Chair in Commerce and Electronic Business and Professor of Marketing, Babson College

• Dr. A. (“Parsu”) Parasuraman, Professor of Marketing, James W. McLamore Chair in Marketing, University of Miami

Dr. B.J. van den Hooff wins ABC's 2006 award

for outstanding Journal of Business Communication article. The Publications Board was impressed by his article with the title "Situational influences on the use of communication technologies".

The Publications Board said:

"We liked the article's thorough review of the communication technology theories (contingency, subjectivist, and situational), the meta-analysis of the literature and the model you generated from that analysis, and most particularly, the validation of the model through data gathered from the Dutch branch of a consulting firm. In short, the study was sophisticated in design, yet the discussion and analysis was so clearly

communicated that even those unfamiliar with the communication technology literature were able to easily follow your argument”.

The award was announced at the Association's annual meeting in San Antonio at the President's Luncheon on October 27th. 2006. Bart van den Hooff has received a plaque and a $500 award generously sponsored by textbook authors Ray Lesikar, Marie Flatley, and Kathy Rentz. Also, an analysis of the award-winning work will also be featured in a special column of Business Communication Quarterly.

Strategic and Cooperative Decision Making

Programme leader: Prof. G.J. van der Laan Programme Description:

This programme focuses on situations involving interactive decision making with possibly diverging interests. In competitive or strategic situations decision makers act individually without being able to contract each others’ actual behaviour meaning promises might not be kept. Therefore, individual incentives play a prominent role. Non co-operative game theory provides a framework to analyse such situations of strategic decision making. Applications include auction theory, strategic voting, trade and quota negotiations, signalling and reputation. In co-operative situations enforceable binding agreements between the decision makers are possible. In such situations the main issue is to obtain a reasonable distribution of the joint revenues from co-operation. Such

allocation problems can be modelled by co-operative games. Applications include cost allocation problems, allocation of bankruptcy deficits, optimal assignment problems, water distribution problems and matching opportunities. Co-operative game theory also provides useful tools to solve problems in social choice theory and multi-criteria analysis. Programme member G1 G2 G3 Total

Time Series Econometrics: Methods, computations and

applications

Programme leader: Prof. S.J. Koopman Programme description:

The programme mainly concerns the development of classical and Bayesian methods for the analysis of time series, with the objective to apply them to empirical problems in economics and finance. The programme also focusses on the implementation of econometric methods in programming environments. The research involves further the development of new econometric methods that can based on the manipulation of standard techniques or on new developments such as simulation techniques. The new

developments are integrated in the work on empirical applications such as volatility modelling, detecting relationships between economic variables and crime, measuring business cycles, seasonal adjustment and modelling of electricity spot prices. The main objective is to publish state- of-the-art theoretical results and their applications in high-quality international journals in the fields of econometrics, statistics and time series analysis.

Applied Labor Economics

Programme leader: Prof. M. Lindeboom Programme description:

The Applied Labour Economics programme is an empirically oriented programme. Its research is grounded in modern economic theories about the functioning of the labour market and related markets. The research programme aims at high quality scientific research in different policy relevant areas of Labour Economics, Health Economics and Industrial Economics. The programme focuses on three areas of research:

The first line of research seeks to bridge the gap between micro- and macroeconomic approaches in order to gain a better understanding of the working of the labour market. This project takes the behaviour of all agents who are active on a given labour market as a starting point to assess the effect of the institutional setting (such as the social security system, the existence of minimum wages etc) on the functioning of this market. A substantial part of this project is devoted to the adequate design and the evaluation of policy interventions on the labour market. Keywords: equilibrium unemployment; social security system; effect of sanctions; programme evaluation.

Innovative Activity and Productivity Growth is the main theme of the second programme. One of the main sources of productivity growth is technological advancement brought about by innovative activity undertaken by individuals and

organisations. This sub programme attempts to delve deeper into the underlying sources. The research is taken from a micro and market based perspective. This is essential to understand the decisions of firms and workers that lead to innovative activity and productivity growth. Keywords: Innovative activity, productivity, Job destruction, job creation, labour market institutions.

The third line of research concerns the Economics of health, work and ageing. Most OECD countries are ageing swiftly as a result of the post-war babyboom and low fertility- and mortality rates, with dramatic consequences for the organisation of our society and institutions like the Social Security- and the Health Care system. This project focuses on issues where labour economics and health economics interact, such as

retirement, consumption and wealth; the dynamic interrelation between health, work and income; health inequality and socio-economic status; and the effect of economic

conditions on mortality. Keywords: Labour market behaviour, Health capital, Measurement of health, Morbidity, Mortality, Social Security, Health Care.

Farms and Firms: The Microeconomics of Poverty, Risk and

Development

Programme leader: Prof. J.W. Gunning Programme description:

The programme addresses four key issues in the economics of development: - constraints (e.g. through exposure to risk) on the ability of households in

developing countries to escape from poverty through asset accumulation; - the potential for sustainable land use in areas with rapid population growth; - the economic implications of migration, both within developing countries and

internationally, from developing to developed countries;

- the scope for economic growth through industrial development;

The focus of the research programme is on microeconomic questions. Its approach is strongly empirical, using case studies or survey data for individual households or firms to test competing theories.

Regional Economics and Networks

Programme leader: Prof. P. Rietveld Programme description:

The research programme on regional economics and networks addresses four interrelated themes: spatial dynamics, land use, transport and spatial information.

Spatial dynamics. The research focuses on the role of knowledge creation and knowledge spill-overs in the development of regions. Also, institutional differences between regions and their contribution to regional and national growth and trade will be analysed. Of special relevance are the functioning of urban land labour and housing markets, and their interrelationships.

Land use. Spatial dynamics have immediate consequences for land use in urban and rural areas (and beyond). Issues such as the realisation of agglomeration benefits (positive externalities) and degradation of quality of landscapes by fragmentation and reduction of open space (negative externalities) will be addressed. Special attention will be paid to various operationalisations of `multifunctional land use' as a means to accommodate for these externalities.

Transport. Problems of congestion and reliability in transport networks imply negative externalities that lead to various sub-optimal outcomes. The contributions of pricing strategies, public or private supply of infrastructure and information provision to reduce congestion and uncertainty will be analyzed. Given various limitations also the relative performance of second best instruments will be investigated.

Spatial information and knowledge. Information and knowledge are key factors in the development of regions and in the proper functioning of transport networks. The market for knowledge and information will be analysed both from a supply and demand
