Background

Alessandro Rosiello combines innovation theories and institutional economics from an evolutionary perspective to study science, technology and innovation dynamics in a variety of industrial settings, entrepreneurship and small business finance, and industrial clustering at regional level.

He has a PhD in Economics from the University of Strathclyde and was initially appointed as a research fellow of the Innogen Institute in the University of Edinburgh to study the policy framework aimed to trigger industrial clustering in Scotland. Over the past 10 years, his research has progressively broadened to investigate the quantitative relationship between R&D and the financial performance of innovative firms, the design of venture capital/R&D policies, the concept of smart specialisation for regional growth, and technological catch-up in resource-rich countries.
