wordcloud 070118My research interests lay in the intersection between innovation studies, development studies, and sustainability. My ambition is to understand the processes of knowledge creation and adoption that underpin the transformations towards sustainable forms of living (economic, social, and environmental) and how they are affected and affect institutions.

More than the analysis of particular countries or regions, I am mostly interested in global comparative analysis and in the linkages between developed and developing countries. Some of the core topics in my research are:

  • Innovation systems, particularly in developing countries
  • Sustainable development
  • Regional transformations
  • Global innovation networks
  • Innovation policy
  • Social-ecological innovations
