    Digitisation and Renaissance of the Manufacturing Industry in Major Cities: The Case of Berlin

    The rise of digitisation will cause a major upheaval in the manufacturing industries, bringing changes to traditional industrial location patterns as well. In order to understand the direction these structural changes are taking, this paper analyses the start-up activity in the industrial sector. The frontrunners are metropolitan regions and in particular major cities such as Berlin or Munich. Furthermore, ...

    Atomwende? Ja, bitte! Warum die Abkehr von der Atomenergie und eine gute Entsorgungspolitik die Energiewende in Deutschland befördern werden

    Die Atomenergie bleibt gesellschaftlich umkämpft. Zum einen wird sie wieder als Zukunftstechnologie gehandelt, mit der vermeintlich klimafreundlich und ressourcenschonend Strom erzeugt werden kann. Zum anderen ist die Endlagerung von Atomabfällen noch nicht geregelt. Das Konzept der ,,atompolitischen Wende“ bringt ‐ analog zur Energiewende ‐ dieses Ringen auf den Punkt. Die Beendigung der kommerziellen ...

    Observing Many Researchers Using the Same Data and Hypothesis Reveals a Hidden Universe of Uncertainty

    This study explores how researchers’ analytical choices affect the reliability of scientific findings. Most discussions of reliability problems in science focus on systematic biases. We broaden the lens to emphasize the idiosyncrasy of conscious and unconscious decisions that researchers make during data analysis. We coordinated 161 researchers in 73 research teams and observed their research decisions ...

    The Impact of Public Procurement on Financial Barriers to Green Innovation: Evidence from European Community Innovation Survey

    The purpose of this study is to identify whether an innovative company’s likelihood of facing financial constraints is different when the company possesses a public procurement contract (PP). Theory suggests that the treatment effects of public procurement, particularly when mediated by the demand-pull effect, may lower a company’s funding constraints for innovation. We test this theory and apply extended ...

    Longitudinal Bidirectional Associations between Personality and Becoming a Leader

    Objective: Leaders differ in their personalities from non- leaders. However, when do these differences emerge? Are leaders “born to be leaders” or does their personality change in preparation for a leadership role and due to increasing leadership experience? Method: Using data from the German Socio-Economic Panel Study, we examined personality differences between leaders (N = 2683 leaders, women: n ...

    A Lasting Crisis Affects R&D Decisions of Smaller Firms: The Greek Experience

    We use the prolonged Greek crisis as a case study to understand how a lasting economic shock affects the innovation strategies of firms in economies with moderate innovation activities. Adopting the 3-stage CDM model, we explore the link between R&D, innovation, and productivity for different size groups of Greek manufacturing firms during the prolonged crisis. At the first stage, we find that the ...

    Signalling Creditworthiness with Fiscal Austerity

    Sovereign borrowers may tighten their fiscal stance in order to signal their creditworthiness to lenders. In a model of sovereign debt with incomplete information, I show that a trustworthy country may reduce its debt beyond the optimal level in order to separate itself from less reliable countries. Since austerity is costly, the gains in the price of debt from separating need to be high enough, as ...

    Incubators, Accelerators and Urban Economic Development

    We combine theory and evidence on incubator and accelerator programmes and their effects on urban economic development. These structured co-working programmes have grown rapidly. However, a rich descriptive literature reveals little about their impact on participants or surrounding urban areas. We situate programmes in a conceptual framework of co-location tools, theorise objectives and benefits and ...

    Research and Development in German Industry: High Intensity, Low Growth

    Research and development (R&D) expenditure in Germany decreased by 5.3 percent overall in 2020 compared to 2019. While the OECD countries actually slightly increased their R&D expenditure on average for the first time in a crisis-ridden year, it declined more sharply in Germany compared to the financial crisis of 2009; German industry, and here the automotive sector, suffered particularly. The decline ...
