During that time, Mariia Shkolnykova gave two presentations: “Technological evolution and economic performance. The case of German bioeconomy” at NIFU and “Who benefits from radical innovations of SMEs in a region?” (paper with Muhamed Kudic) at the Centre for Technology, Innovation and Culture (TIK) of the University of Oslo. Apart from that, she had many fruitful work meetings and discussions with researchers from NIFU and TIK Centre. During her research stay, Mariia Shkolnykova worked closely together with Antje Klitkou who is a Research Professor at NIFU and an excellent expert in technology and innovation studies.
The research stay was funded by the “BremenIdea Out” program of the University of Bremen, which gives PhD students of all Faculties the chance to realize international research visits on a competitive basis.
