Lab Key visual

Welcome to the Chair of Technology and Innovation Strategy.

TIS uses methods from data science and econometrics to investigate technology and innovation strategy. We focus on topics such as intellectual property, inventor mobility, competitive pressure, and decision making, with a specialization on clean technology and drug discovery. We work with scientists across several fields, including economics, strategic management, statistics, and computer science.

We publish research in the field of economics and management, and collaborate with scientistis in fields such as computer science and energy. We are also training the next generation of managers and leaders, with an emphasis on business analytics, big data, and data science.

  • The lab is expanding – if you are a potential doctoral student or post-doc, please see the Lab Page.
