About me g


I have Ph.D. degrees in Economics (2003) from the University of Economics in Prague, Czech Republic and in Science, technology and innovation studies (2005) from the University of Oslo, Norway. From 2002 until 2010 I survived eight long Norwegian winters doing research at the TIK Centre, University of Oslo. Since 2011 to 2017 I held the chair of Associate Professor in CIRCLE, Lund University (on a part-time basis at reduced capacity and commuting). Since 2010 I am based at CERGE‑EI in Prague, initially running projects as a senior researcher and currently (since 2018) as the Deputy Director for Research.


In less academic part of my professional life, I currently advice the Czech government as a member of the Commission for Evaluation of Results of Research Organizations and Programmes at the Council for Research, Development and Innovation. I am also involved in activities of IDEA think-tank at CERGE-EI. In the recent past, I was the Research and Innovation Observatory (formerly known as ERAWATCH) correspondent for the Czech Republic, a member of the Evaluation panel on Business, Management, Administration and Finance of the Czech Science Foundation and the Evaluation panel of the OMEGA programme of the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic. I also did consultancy work for flagship publications by UNIDO, UNCTAD and UNECE. Read my blog about innovation policy and related topics (only in Czech).
