Sustainability transition and innovation: The spatial dimension

Is your company ready to explore remote territories?


Dr. Florian Noseleit teaches and researches in the economics of entrepreneurship, innovation, and strategy at the University of Groningen. He is the program coordinator for the MSc BA Small Business & Entrepreneurship. The focus of his research considers entrepreneurship as an economic function and not only an occupational choice. These entrepreneurial functions can be carried out by individuals, teams, and organizations of different size and age. His research interests include the determinants and implications of entrepreneurial activity, the interrelation of innovation and entrepreneurship, collaborative R&D, social innovation,  sustainability, and performance of regions and firms.

His research has been published in journals like Strategic Management Journal, Journal of Management, Industrial and Corporate Change, Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication, Small Business Economics, Journal of Regional Science, Regional Studies, Journal of Business Research,  Journal of Evolutionary Economics, and Cambridge Journal of Economics. Practitioner-oriented contributions have been published in the Maandblad voor Accountancy en Bedrijfseconomie and Economisch Statistische Berichten. Florian has worked in several national and international research projects and regularly exchanges his expertise with stakeholders of regional innovation systems by means of practitioner-oriented policy reports, publications, and workshops.
