Institute for International Trade and Innovation

Our research group focuses on topics at the intersection of innovation and globalization – two areas that in Economics are typically studied separately. However, in today’s world innovation and globalization are tightly linked: Technological innovation spreads internationally and has global impacts, and globalization is often the driver for innovation. At the same time, we have witnessed rapid developments in both globalization and technological change over the past few decades. Advances in information and communication technology (ICT) have completely changed the way how firms operate. The world has never been more integrated with respect to trade, foreign direct investment and technology.
