Public Entrepreneurship and Innovation


We generate research that provides solutions to the following questions: What can we do to have a better impact: build, rebuild and promote efficient communication and cooperation between the public servants, politicians and citizens as well as between various organization? What role can and should have the predictable technological and anthropological changes? And, how can the public enterprise generate the necessary enthusiasm and participation?

We try to solve these questions by studying entrepreneurship and public productivity, the models of participation and construction of public policy solutions and the technological impact within the public policy. To reach these goals, we study economics, law, political science, demography, sociology and technological innovation.
