Institutions, Networks, Knowledge Transfer, and Innovations: A Comparison of the Development of the Green Economy in Ukraine, Russia, and Germany
The Volkswagen Foundation approved funding for the three-year project which was granted through the initiative Trilateral Partnerships – Cooperation Projects between Scholars and Scientists from Ukraine, Russia and Germany. The Institute of SME Research and Entrepreneurship of the University of Mannheim will implement it in partnership with the Institute for Economics and Forecasting of the National Academy of Science (Ukraine) and the Siberian Federal University (Russian Federation). We build on our earlier research that the trilateral team has performed together in the framework of the completed project “Technology Transfer in Post-Socialist Economies – The Case of Ukraine and Russia in Comparison with East Germany and Poland” (2016-2018), funded by the Volkswagen Foundation. We also extend the insights of the ongoing interim project “Opportunities, Trust, Incentives and Institutional Voids: Technology Transfer in Post-Socialist Economies – The Case of Ukraine and Russia in Comparison with Germany”.
