My research is on current restructuring of industries and firms at the global level (outsourcing, off shoring, engagement in global value chains). In particular: The restructuring of innovation and R&D activities into global innovation networks, GINs; The role of emerging markets (China, India, Brazil, South Africa) in these emerging GINs; The consequences of these new network constructs for EU and the emerging markets respectively; Technology transfer and capability building related to renewable energy. In addition to this I am also looking at the institutional frameworks governing globalisation processes (World Trade Organisation (e.g. the TRIPs Agreement), UNFCCC, World Bank), and their impact for globalisation of knowledge intensive industries.
