I’m involved in economic analysis of law and public policies – raging from theoretical approach (science), practical (implementations) and journal (being a guest in the media). I mostly put attention to the issues related to intellectual property – primary to copyrights and patents. I think that the highest efficiency is in the kind of intangible asset management, which is built on business models based on a wide conditional sharing.
I got my Ph.D. in economics at Cracow University of Economics after the public defence of the thesis supervised by prof. Jerzy Hausner – “Economic and social analysis of inventions protection law”. I also graduated from two master faculties – administration and law – both at Jagiellonian University. I also completed barrister training and I was enrolled on the list of barristers. Moreover, I was engaged in a dozen of scientific and implementation projects acting as a law and economics expert.
I work as an assistant professor at Public Economy and Administration Department of Cracow University of Economies. Additionally, I’m involved in a think tank called “Centre for Analysis of Jagiellonian Club”. And I run my blog about economic analysis of law – bartlomiejbiga.pl (I hope that soon you will find more English content there).
My specializations and science interest include:
law and economics
intellectual property law (mostly: inventions protection and copyrights)
efficiency of public policies
functioning of public administration – mostly in the context of flexibility and predictability
managing of companies’ intangible assets
supporting better legislation
economy of culture
My passions are: art-rock music, Bridge and new technologies.
