Biography

Dr Serdal Ozusaglam is a postdoctoral research fellow with PhD degree in Economics and Innovation Management from the University of Strasbourg. Prior to joining WBS, Serdal was a teaching fellow of Economics of Innovation and postdoctoral research fellow at the Leeds University Business School between 2014 and 2020. His research is interdisciplinary and addresses real-world challenges through policy-relevant economic analysis by examining the impact of innovation, in particular Environmental Innovations, on firm growth and competitiveness for manufacturing and agricultural enterprises. He uses applied economic methods to understand how businesses and regions can become more sustainable. His research explores the institutional, demand and supply-side factors, and organisational dynamics that drive conventional and environmental innovations, and firm performance including:

  • The impact of international sustainability standards, such as ISO14001 and agro-food standards upon firm business and corporate social responsibility (CSR) performance.
  • The links between cooperation for innovation and manufacturing firms` innovation performance.
  • Explaining the role of city-regions and local knowledge spill-overs upon firms’ eco-innovation and productivity.
