Research Area Entrepreneurship and Public Policy
Public policy continues to be an important determinant of economic and societal development, among others, so long as institutions and policy-makers interfere to shape the market economy. During the last few decades all levels of government at the federal, regional and municipal level have become key players in the promotion of a so-called entrepreneurial economy. The re-emergence of entrepreneurship and the shift from a market economy to an entrepreneurial economy accelerated due to an increased globalization and pressing challenges (e.g., climate change, pandemics).
Our research focus goes beyond rather traditional paradigms of considerations reflecting and taking into account the varieties of entrepreneurship policies and policy-making including digital, social, sustainable, institutional, administrative, public and other forms of entrepreneurship. Such investigations, research and activities allow us to think out of the box and develop innovative forms of governance including state-societal co-collaboration. This discussion has been triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic and lies at the core heart of our research. And they do have an impact on public administration and public management in the future assessed by our School and partner organizations.
