The network aims to facilitate research exchange on innovation systems and to develop an understanding of their influence and operationalization. It consists of 18 members from 14 academic institutions, including six international partners from the UK, Norway, Denmark, the Netherlands and Switzerland. The network brings together a wide range of expertise on different types of innovation systems, linking economists with political scientists, geographers and engineers. Ann Hipp will specifically link the network activities with her research on innovation systems in the context of her postdoctoral projects and cumulative habilitation.
The project will include several working meetings and two international conferences to be held in Bremen, Göttingen, Braunschweig and Jena. The inaugural meeting of the network is planned for April 2022 at the University of Bremen.
We congratulate Ann Hipp on the funding and wish all participants in the network an insightful exchange!
