My research activities include the analysis and evaluation of public innovation-oriented policies. A particular focus is on the growing subsidisation of joint R&D projects (projects realised by consortia of organisations) at the expense of support for individual R&D projects (projects are conducted by a single organisation). In this context, it is still largely unexplored if and if so in what cases supporting joint projects is superior to subsidising individual projects, how organisations’ embeddedness into inter-organizational knowledge networks changes, and hence, if policy tool influences the extent and way organizations access external knowledge.
