Professor Suzanne Scotchmer, of the UC Berkeley Economics Department, School of Public Policy, and School of Law, was among the most influential economists of her generation.   She has published in elite law reviews as well as leading economics journals. Her book, Innovation and Incentives (MIT Press, 2004) is a classic in the field. She has been especially important with respect to her insights about cumulative innovation; these have moved the field away from the simplistic single-stage innovation model that once predominated in the IP field.To capture a range of perspectives on her influence while it is still fresh in the minds of the influenced will help carry her legacy forward.
