Environmental innovation and entrepreneurshipEnvironmental innovations must be diffused and used at a large scale to achieve the desired positive effects which they were designed to give. My research is about how companies are stimulated and supported to innovate and how environmental innovations can bring economic and societal development. In relation to this I am particularly interested in export and diffusion of environmental innovations to other countries and how environmental technologies can contribute to a sustainable urban development.
Corporate environmental managementMy earlier research focussed on corporate environmental management more specifically management systems and strategic management in small companies and local authorities. An area in which I still have some activities and PhD-supervision.
I teach engineering students in environmental technology, corporate environmental management and environmentally driven business development.
I cooperate since more than ten years with regional business support organisations in supporting small businesses in the area of sustainable strategy and product development.
