Om utbildningen

In this programme, you will be provided with the theory, concepts and methods to analyse and better understand the role of innovation in economic, social and sustainable development from a historical perspective. The unique focus on spatial dynamics/economic geography and economic history enables you to gain insights into how the areas of development and innovation interplay, evolve and shape the economy in different regions and periods of time.  

Innovation is fundamental in the process of economic, social and environmentally sustainable development. You will then be better equipped to understand and analyse the grand challenges such as; climate change, food security and poverty alleviation. Innovation is also about the diffusion and incremental changes that yield economic, social and environmental benefits for society.

In this programme, you will learn the dynamics of both the macro- and microeconomics of innovation. You will get insights into how innovations are shaped by history in a path-dependent way as well as by the spatial context. You will learn about the linkages between innovation and capability-building, and economic, social and sustainable development over time and space.

The programme draws on frontline research in the field of economic geography, economics of innovation and economic history. Some of the key topics covered are innovation for sustainable development, economics of innovation and energy transitions.
