Sustainable Urban and Regional Development, Sustainable Business and Entrepreneurship
A short presentation of yourself:
My research interests are characterized by two different scientific disciplines: business administration and geography. This is due to the fact that I have studied environmental system sciences – focus on business administration on bachelor and master levels but soon realised I need a broader set of scientific backgrounds to investigate the questions I am interested in. I am currently enrolled in the interdisciplinary PhD program “Sustainable Urban and Regional Development” at the University of Graz. With my thesis I investigate the interlinkages of sustainable development in rural areas and the sustainability of small and medium sized enterprises, on an individual company but also on a cluster level. Sustainable regional development can only be successful if all stakeholder groups are included in the process.
