Professor Jan Fagerberg's webpage at the University of Oslo
University of Oslo has decided to discontinue its support for webpages
through this channel (folk.uio.no). As of June 2013 this page will
therefore not be updated.
Welcome to my new webpage at
I am interested in innovation, its impact on the economy and
related policy matters, and have published extensively on these and
other topics in books and journals.
http://www.janfagerberg.org/ you can read more about my background,
research and publications. You can also download many of my papers, see
presentations, and watch videos.
I share my time between the Centre for Technology, Innovation and
Culture (TIK) at the University of Oslo, the Department of Business and Management at Aalborg
University and the Centre for Innovation, Research and Competence in the Learning
Economy (CIRCLE) at the University of Lund.
