Experience:

Thomas Scherngell joined the Innovation Systems Department of AIT in December 2007, currently leading the thematic area Innovation Systems Modelling of the Department. He holds a venia docendi (habilitation) in Economic Geography and Regional Science, received from the Vienna University of Economics and Business in 2012. He received his M.A. in Economic Geography (2003) from the University of Vienna (Mag. phil.), and his PhD (2006) from the same university (Dr. rer. nat). He also held a post-doc fellowship at the University of Macau, China (2012-2013). He is an expert in economics of innovation and technological change as well as in regional science and spatial analysis. Over the past five years, Thomas’ research focus was on the structure and dynamics of R&D networks, with a special focus on networks constituted under the heading of the European Framework Programmes (FPs). Further he has been working extensively on spatial analysis methods, with a special emphasis on spatial econometric methods and spatial interaction modelling, and on network analysis methods.
