On March 9, our second semester International Management & Leadership students were invited to a “Peace workshop” in the Austrian Parliament by Member of the Parliament Mag. Martin Engelberg. The workshop primarily served to kick off the Peacebell project within the framework of the course Empirical Research Methods.
For this year’s course, LBS Senior Lecturer for Research Methods, Dr. Verena Régent, found a particularly interesting partnership: Together with the Viennese organization “Social City Wien”, the Irish/American musician and artist Michael Patrick Kelly will create a #Peacebell for the city of Vienna.
Christian Reiner, senior researcher at LBS, was invited by the Carinthian Economic Society (Volkswirtschaftliche Gesellschaft Kärnten) to deliver a talk on the economics of climate change. About 100 visitors attended the talk on October 3rd 2019 in Klagenfurt, Carinthia’s capital. Mr Reiner stressed the economic case for ambitious climate policy as well as the chances for business.
Christian Reiner, senior researcher at LBS, has published a peer-reviewed article with the title “Concordance of office market cycles? Dynamics in European metropolises in the context of the financial and economic crisis”. The paper is joint work together with Robert Musil from the Austrian Academy of Sciences. It is published in the well-established, peer-reviewed German journal “Zeitschrift für Wirtschaftsgeographie”. The topic of the paper is strongly related to the LBS study program Strategic Finance & Business Analytics.
Christian Reiner, senior researcher at LBS, has co-authored the “Austrian Research and Technology Report 2019”. This annual report has been published by three Austrian ministries and written by external experts from applied research institutes and universities. Given the importance of the report for the wider public, it is an honour to contribute to this official publication.
Christian Reiner, senior lecturer at LBS, has published a new study on the development of policies to foster science-industry knowledge transfer in Austria together with researchers from WPZ Research. The study is part of the “OECD TIP Knowledge Transfer and Policies project” and financed by the Federal Ministry for Digital and Economic Affairs. The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), established in 1961, “promotes policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world” according to their mission statement.
