Laura Rosendahl Huber holds a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Amsterdam and is currently working as a Senior Research Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition.
Her primary fields of research are Entrepreneurship, Economics of Education and Organisational Economics. In her research she strives to answer research questions that have practical and/or policy relevant implications. Her current research consists of several field experiments that are applied to study different topics related to entrepreneurship and innovation. For example, one of her research projects, which is conducted in close collaboration with IGL, studies the effectiveness of an Innovation Voucher programme to stimulate innovation activities of SMEs.
Other examples of research projects study the effect of entrepreneurship education in a European context, and investigate how interaction with entrepreneurial role models affects students’ entrepreneurial competencies, attitudes and intentions.
