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.
