I am associate professor at Copenhagen University, Department of Geoscience and Natural Resource Management. I specialize in innovation studies into the green and circular economy at the firm, interfirm, industry, value chain and eco-park level. In the later years I am increasingly also researching into green and circular innovation in developing countries. I am currently heading a research project on circular industrial parks in Kenya called 'Gecko' and I am teaching two courses on the Green and Circular Economy for medium and top managers from developing countries.
