Society and Economic Dynamics
The program of the research area investigates the societal conditions of economic dynamics. The query can be focused on different topics -- values and mentalities, education and knowledge, labor processes and relations, or political, legal, scientific and cultural institutions.
How is knowledge produced in diverse organizational and institutional contexts? Both industrial and political environments are considered, and particularly innovative forms of cooperation. How is newness in society, particularly in the economy, dependent on cultural and artistic forms? How does the internationalization of firms and industries change the conditions for innovative action? Such are the leading questions for this area's research units and research groups.
