The project investigates regional disparities of innovation and entrepreneurial activities within Germany. A special focus is on the legacy of 40 years of the socialist GDR regime, across East German regions. We collect and analyze data on innovation and entrepreneurship at a regional level from the time before World War II, the socialist period, and from more recent decades.
