About me


Cristina Chaminade.jpg

I am a full professor in Innovation Studies at the Faculty of Economics and Management at Lund University (Sweden) and Adjunct professor at the Department of Business and Management at Aalborg university (Denmark). I am affiliated to LUCSUS (Lund University Center for Sustainability) and CIRCLE (Center for Innovation, Research and Competences in the Learning Economy)

My research interests lay in the intersection between innovation studies, development studies and sustainability.  I am interested in understanding how can sustainable regional transformations be accelerated and the role of global production and innovation networks enabling and constraining such transformations.

I am mostly interested in global comparative analysis and in the linkages between developed and developing countries.

I hold a bachelor degree in Economics with a major in Structural and Development Economics and a PhD in Economics from the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM)/University of Sao Paulo (Brazil).

I work regularly as international expert for international organizations such as the European Commission, UNCTAD, OECD and UN-ECLAC and publish in international journals, refereed books and handbooks in the fields of innovation, international business, development studies and knowledge management like Research Policy, Industry and Innovation, World Development, Journal of International Management, Innovation and Development and European Planning Studies.

I am an elected member of the Board of Globelics, the global network for learning, innovation and competence systems research and  of the scientific board of Eurolics, the European network of research on inclusive and sustainable development in Europe.
