Professor Jan Fagerberg's webpage at the University of Oslo

The 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.

On  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.
