In April 2014, Jutta Günther, together with Iciar Dominguez Lacasa, Björn Jindra, and Philipp Marek from the Leibniz Institute for Economic Research in Halle (IWH), joined the Faculty of Business Studies and Economics at the University of Bremen. Together with Marcel Lange (IT specialist), we joined forces to continue and expand our research in structural change and innovation. Since then, the group has grown continuously based on numerous activities. The contributions of Muhamed Kudic in the years 2017 to 2019 played a significant role in this. Today, we work as an international team of about 20 members. Our research is structured in four areas: (1) System transformation and structural change, (2) Internationalisation and Digitalisation, (3) Innovation and New Technologies as well as (4) Sustainability, energy, and environmental innovation.
Since April 1, 2020, Jutta Günther has also held the position of Vice President for Research, Young Academics and Transfer at the University of Bremen.
