Professur für Innovationsökonomik

Wir forschen für ein besseres Verständnis der Rolle von Innovation im privaten und öffentlichen Sektor, welche essenziell für die Entwicklung von Unternehmensstrategien und Innovationspolitik sind. Unsere Forschungsschwerpunkte liegen in den Bereichen der Industrieökonomik und der angewandten Mikroökonometrie, insbesondere auf Fragestellungen der Innovations- und Wissenschaftsökonomik.

Neues aus der Forschung

Forschung zur Diversität und Corporate Governance erscheint in "Managerial and Decision Economics"

The participation of women in top-level corporate boards or rather the lack of it is subject to intense public debate. Countries are considering legally binding quotas to increase the share of women on boards or have already implemented such rules. While research on board diversity suggests positive effects on corporate governance and even firm performance, the mechanisms through which these benefits materialize remain mostly speculative. This study focuses on boards of directors in a large sample of listed companies in 15 European countries...[mehr]

Forschung zur Innovationsfähigkeit von neuen Technologieunternehmen erscheint in "The Journal of Technology Transfer"

Assessing the impact of publicly funded scientific research in entrepreneurial ecosystems is of great interest for science and entrepreneurship policy. Knowledge from academic research flows into the private sector through publications, patents, and researcher mobility as well as through direct interactions between founders and researchers at public research institutions (PRIs). New technology-based firms (NTBFs) are generally praised for high innovativeness despite their resource constraints and liability of newness. This study therefore...[mehr]

Forschung zu Beratungsaktivitäten von Wissenschaftlern und deren Einfluss auf die wissenschaftliche Arbeit erscheint in „Industrial and Corporate Change“

Academic consulting is an important and effective means of knowledge transfer between the public and private sectors. It offers opportunities for research application but also raises concerns over potentially negative consequences for academic research and its dissemination. For a sample of social, natural, and engineering science academics in Germany, and controlling for the selection into consulting, we investigate the effect of consulting with public and private sector organizations on research performance. While previous research suggested...

Forschung zum Zusammenhang von öffentlicher Förderung von jungen Unternehmen und Fremdkapitalfinanzierung erscheint in "Economics of Innovation and New Technology"

Access to financial resources is crucial for young firms to strive. To foster innovation and growth in these firms, governments address financing constraints by initiating public support programs. For such financial support to be effective, it is, however, important that firms be able to augment publicly provided resources with additional means. This study examines the relation between new ventures’ subsidy receipt and long-term bank loans. Studying new ventures founded between 2005 and 2009 in Germany, we test whether the subsidy itself...

Forschung zur Zusammenarbeit von Unternehmen und Wissenschaft bei F&E Projekten erscheint in "Economics Letters"

R&D collaborations that combine resources and exploit complementary expertise contribute to the successful creation and implementation of new knowledge. Collaborative R&D may further be a way in which firms cope with financing constraints. Based on panel data for a large sample of R&D-active firms, findings provide empirical support for this hypothesis. Results show that collaborating firms rely less on internal funding for research than others even when accounting for firms’ selection into collaborations.

Forschung zu staatlicher F&E Förderung in der Wirtschaft erscheint in "Research Policy"

Research and product or process development are two distinct, yet complementary innovation activities. Making use of a specific grant-based policy design that explicitly distinguishes between research projects, development projects, and mixed R&D projects, this study estimates the direct and cross scheme effects on both research and development investments of recipient firms. Positive cross scheme effects can be expected when research and development activities are complementary and financing constraints are more binding for research than for...

Forschung zu institutionellen Mehrfachanbindungen in der Wissenschaft erscheint in „Scientometrics“.

This study sheds light on the unexplored phenomenon of multiple institutional affiliations using scientific publications. Institutional affiliations are important in the organisation and governance of science. Multiple affiliations may alter the traditional framework of academic employment and careers and may require a reappraisal of institutional assessment based on research outcomes of affiliated staff. Results for authors in three major science and technology nations (Germany, Japan and the UK) and in three fields (biology, chemistry, and...
