No summary paragraph submitted.

Economics professor Usha Nair-Reichert was awarded a Fulbright specialist's award during the academic year 2015-16. This prestigious award enabled her to visit the Warsaw School of Economics (SGH), one of the premier institution in the field of economics in Poland, and collaborate with the World Economy Research Institute (WERI) in program development and research.

Nair-Reichert was a guest speaker in courses on multinational firms and innovation in the newly introduced “Global Business, Finance and Governance” field at SGH, and she interfaced with faculty on further program development in this area. She is conducting research on innovation ecosystems and innovation strategies of firms in transition economies, and is collaborating with experts in the field from Poland. 

Nair-Reichert was also the keynote speaker at the conference “New Forms of Innovation and Their Impact on Competitiveness: Enterprise, Industry and Country Perspective” organized by WERI in Warsaw, and was invited to present her research at the International Warsaw Invention Show. 

The Fulbright Specialist's Program provides highly competitive, merit-based grants to qualified U.S. faculty and professionals in select disciplines, to engage in short-term collaborative projects. Shorter grant lengths give Specialists greater flexibility to pursue projects that work best with their current academic or professional commitments. The program promotes linkages between U.S. scholars and professionals and their counterparts at host institutions overseas, and strives to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and other countries.

Georgia Tech’s Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts is recognized nationally and internationally for teaching and research examining the human context of engineering, science, and technology. The College is comprised of six schools ─ Economics; History and Sociology; The Sam Nunn School of International Affairs; Literature, Media, and Communication; Modern Languages; Public Policy; and Georgia Tech’s Army, Air Force, and Navy ROTC units. It offers ten bachelor’s of science, six master’s, and six doctoral degrees. Students are prepared for professional leadership in government, business, public policy, international affairs, law, technology, and new media. Founded in 1990, the College is named in honor of former Atlanta Mayor Ivan Allen Jr. (1911 - 2003).
