Ugo Pagano


After completing classic studies in 1969 at Liceo Umberto I in Napoli, I obtained my laurea  from the University of Siena in 1973. I got my PhD in Economics from the University of Cambridge where I was later to become University Lecturer and a Fellow of Pembroke College.

I have also taught at the Central European University and at the University of Cassino.

At the University of Siena I have tried to  cooperate with my colleagues to organize graduate programs where research students feel part of a community within which they make autonomous choices on their research. The picture above was taken during the 2017 meeting of the Doctorate School.

For informations on the Doctorate School go to:

My fields of interest include institutional and evolutionary economics, law and economics, varieties of capitalism, innovation and IPR, bio-economics and the economics of nationalism and globalization.
