We develop innovative solutions to current scientifically and practically relevant issues. We pursue a quantitative-empirical and multidisciplinary research approach. Based on theories like institutional economics, industrial economics, microeconomics, social psychology, and behavioral economics, we derive testable predictions, which we test using primary and secondary (panel) data and experiments. The methods used are state-of-the-art. Research results are presented at national and international conferences, published in prestigious international journals and disseminated to students and company representatives.
