From October 2016 to January 2020, Tobias Wendler worked as a research assistant on his dissertation on "Green Technologies and their Role for Sustainability", in addition to teaching and third-party funded projects. In March 2020 he successfully completed his doctoral colloquium.
In his cumulative dissertation, he deals with the effects of environmental innovations on the reduction of greenhouse gases and on the conservation of natural resources in the countries of the European Union. He places the four empirical papers in an interdisciplinary context, which is fed by natural, environmental and social science considerations on sustainability. With a focus on green technologies and natural resources, his work makes an important contribution to empirical innovation economics.
Tobias Wendler continues to work as a research associate (postdoc) in the research group, including a project to study the transformation of energy supply in the steel industry (H2B) and the establishment of the Bremen Research Centre for Energy Systems (BEST).
