Wennberg, Karl

I am professor of organization and entrepreneurship at Linköping University and visiting research fellow at SSE. My research is on Entrepreneurship, Regional Development, and Organization Theory. I study theoretical, practical and policy implication of these streams of research and communicate this in articles, books, case studies and public policy papers. I have lectured in Europe, Asia, North America, Australia, and consulted for NGOs, governments, and private firms.
