2) Curiosity about technology, economics, and public policy in the widest sense
- a) We will look for basic research skills such as identifying leading academics in a given field, downloading, reading, and summarising academic literature (though we do not expect technical material to be necessarily understood!) for discussion with the Executive Director.
