Our group focuses on theoretically-informed, evidence-based and policy-relevant research on the spatial aspects of economic activities, and technological as well as societal transformation processes. Special attention is given to issues of spatial patterns of innovation and knowledge sharing activities, uneven regional development, and regional policy and planning. Applying economic, institutional, social and political perspectives, we seek to contribute to a better understanding of the emergence and change of spatial socio-economic structures and processes.

Our areas in research and teaching comprise: Geography of innovation with a special focus on disruptive technologies and institutional dynamics | regional economic change and regional development | innovation and regional policies | gender studies | area protection policy and land use management | peripheral and rural areas | regional planning | political geography.
