Welcome to the Chair of Innovation and Entrepreneurship with focus on Japan/East Asia

Our group looks at organizations that are embedded into an institutional environment. In particular, we are concerned with i) the institutional implications for innovation, corporate culture and organizational design, and ii) how institutions change over time. We focus primarily on Japanese organizations and the Japanese context, but we also look at different institutional settings across countries. The Chair for the Study of Economic Institutions, Innovation and East Asian Development is affiliated to the "Interdisziplinäres Zentrum für Ostasienstudien (IZO)”.
