Departement of Economics and Innovation

The Department for Economics and Innovation's academic profile relates to research into innovation in organisations and research primarily aimed at social economics.

In innovation, research is linked to how organisations undergo changes to create value for their customers and society as a whole. This includes how organisations involve their customers and users in the development of new products and services. The research is also based on the management of innovations and their implementation in organisations.

In economics, research is based broadly on microeconomics, as well as macroeconomics.

The department offers a bachelor programme in economics and administration (master in business and economics) and innovation. There are several new study programmes in the pipeline at both master and bachelor level.

Private and public organizations must act decisively in a context of critical and sustained uncertainty, adopting experimental, agile approaches to problems, prioritizing openness to change and quick reactions over concerns for efficiency and form (Chesbrough...

  • Significant amount of resources is used nationally and internationally on health research. But research has limited value in itself; it must be communicated to clinicians to gain value. The project's main goal is to test a tool for simple and effective communication of professional procedures to clinicians. The study will investigate whether an electronic tool for procedure communication and handling has an effect on how medical doctors use, develop and update professional procedures. Three...

  • The project will, through a 'multi-level analysis', examine the effects of green public procurement in car transport.

  • Quantitative studies and previous literature have shown that contract follow-up in public contracts is not taken care of well enough. The consequences of inadequate and poor follow-up of the contracts entered into can be costly for the public sector. In phase 1, the project took a closer look at this challenge with the help of qualitative interviews with seven informants.
