CIRCLE

Organisational unit: Research centre / Specialised centre

Description

Centre for Innovation, Research and Competence in the Learning Economy (CIRCLE)CIRCLE is an interdisciplinary center for innovation research spanning several faculties at Lund University. Our aim is to understand and explain how innovation can contribute to a good society and tackle societal challenges like economic crises, climate change or increased globalization of economic activities. This aim requires advanced insights into how knowledge is created and diffused in organizations, networks, regions, countries, and globally; how knowledge is turned into innovations; and which societal conditions promote the creation and diffusion of innovation.

Research

Research at CIRCLE is currently organized in five interconnected thematic areas: (1) Innovation and Entrepreneurship, (2) Globalization of Innovation, (3) Innovation and Sustainability, (4) Innovations Skills, Strategies and Industry Renewal, and (5) Innovation Systems and Policy. Each platform hosts different research projects; most researchers at CIRCLE are involved in several platform.
