Organisation profile

The IKE Group is part of the Department of Business and Management, Aalborg University and is a central actor in the Danish Research Unit for Industrial Dynamics (DRUID).

The focus of the research group is on innovation, knowledge and economic dynamics at different levels of aggregation. Common for the approach is that economic development is seen as knowledge driven and that knowledge creation and innovation are seen as reflecting processes of interactive learning within systemic frameworks. The group has made major contributions to the innovation system and the learning economy concepts. The main four research themes are:

  • Knowledge, innovation and regional dynamics
  • Economic development in the globalising learning economy
  • Competition, organisational change and economic transformation
  • Economics of knowledge, innovation and evolution

Certain issues such as financing of innovation, innovation indicators and innovation policy are central to the research program as a whole and cut across the themes
