University of California San Diego

Innovators aren’t born, they can be made, according to recent research from the University of California San Diego’s School of Global Policy and Strategy.

Graff Zivin and professor of management Elizabeth Lyons tested these previously held notions by creating a contest for UC San Diego’s engineering and computer science students. The competition, outlined in their National Bureau of Economic Research working paper, was designed to answer the question: Are persuaded innovators less capable than those who naturally gravitate to innovative activities?
