Research Interests:

In my scientific work, I focus on entrepreneurship and innovation, their role in regional innovation systems and the economic transformation of the region. These topics are currently being researched in the context of adaptation to challenges arising from exponential technologies and societal challenges such as sustainability and ageing populations. I have been working at the FSE UJEP since 2009, from 2013-2017 I was the Head of the Department of Economics. I am currently the Head of the Faculty Centre for Cooperation with Companies. In 2015-2019, I managed the Innovation Centre of the Ústí nad Labem Region, where I am now responsible for internationalisation. I am a member of the MMR expert team for the RE:START programme. I initiated and coordinated the Regional Digital Health Platform (2019-2022), which is also a Reference Site for Active and Healthy Ageing (RSCN). As a member of various (not only) regional boards, I am involved in the development of strategic documents. I also act as an evaluator of social innovation projects in OPZ+ and SozialMarie.
