    „The difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas as in escaping from old ones.“ (John Maynard Keynes)

Welcome

to the Chair of Economics of Innovation and Structural Change

Since September 01, 2022 Michael Rochlitz is acting head of the Chair of Economics, esp. Innovation and Structural Economics. Michael Rochlitz is Professor of Economics, esp. Institutional Change, in the Department of Economics.
