For my PhD project, I conduct comparative innovation policy studies in a European context. Mainly, my project focuses on changes in the distribution and allocation of funding for research and innovation in countries with high-performing innovation systems. It devotes particular attention to the impact of EU innovation policies on the domestic level and to new innovation policy approaches in the face of so-called “Grand Challenges”, e. g. climate action and demographic change.
