I am Professor of Industry and Innovation Studies with research interest in science, technology, industrial change, foreign direct investments and innovation policy in central and eastern Europe. My research is based in neo-Schumpeterian, evolutionary and institutional economics. I favour empirically oriented and policy relevant research focused on countries of central and eastern Europe. I am involved in several European research networks and policy consultancy activities in these areas.
I obtained my PhD from Zagreb University (1988) and studied in Netherlands (1986) and Denmark (1988/1989). I have a long standing experience of research in the area of innovation studies as well as significant policy making experience in Croatia and ex-Yugoslavia. I worked as department director at the Republic Institute for Planning (Croatia), as a researcher at the Institute of Economics Zagreb (Croatia), and as Federal Under-Secretary for Development in the last SFRY government. From 1993 to 1999, I worked as a Senior Fellow at SPRU, University of Sussex where I am now Visiting Fellow. I joined SSEES UCL in 1999.
I am acting as an expert for the various EC DGs, as consultant for OECD, UNESCO, UNIDO, World Bank, UNECE and Asian Development Bank, and I have worked on technical assistance projects with Ernst & Young and TNO.
My research has been focused on the following key themes:
- Science, technology and industrial transformation of central Europe and Russia
- Foreign direct investment and international industrial networks in Central and eastern Europe (CEE)
- R&D and innovation policy in CEE
- Technology transfer, systems of innovation, technology policy and catching-up
I have published extensively in international journals on issues of innovation policy. I am the author of 'International Technology Transfer and Catch Up in Economic Development', Edward Elgar, 1999, and co-editor of the volume Innovation and Structural Change in Post-Socialism, NATO Science Series, Kluwer Academic Publishers, Dordrecht, 1999. and two recent volumes: F. McGowan, S. Radosevic and N. von Tunzelmann, The Emerging Industrial Structure of the Wider Europe, Routledge, London. 2004, and Radosevic, S. and B. Sadowski (eds.) International Industrial Networks and Industrial Restructuring in Central Europe, Russia and Ukraine, Kluwer, 2004. I am also co-editor of Knowledge-Based Economy in Countries of Central and Eastern Europe: Countries and Industries in a Process of Change, Palgrave, 2006.
