Field: Innovation Dynamics and Modelling

Main Research: Innovation policy and management; theories, empirics and practice


Doris Schartinger graduated in Economics and works as a scientist in the Innovation Systems Department. Her primary research focus is on the economics of innovation and technological change. Doris has been involved in a number of research projects ranging from theoretical and empirical studies of innovation, and on questions of technology management and technology strategy at the firm level, to managerial and policy dimensions of these issues. She uses traditional tools such as survey analysis, case studies, but also group and prospective methodologies. In the past she covered many aspects of innovation processes and diffusion in private manufacturing firms, public organisations, public-private networks – currently she is particularly interested in service innovation considering the increasing tertiarization and resulting dependence of economies on innovation dynamics in the service economy. Recent projects concentrated on innovation in the health care service system, and intellectual property rights as indicators for innovation. She has been involved in a number of contract research projects for different clients including various Austrian Ministries, the OECD and the European Commission and is experienced in co-ordinating and managing such projects.
