Dr. Andreas Koch

Short CV

Andreas Koch studied geography, urban planning, and public law at the Universities of Hannover, Tübingen, Stuttgart and Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) focusing on economic geography and development studies. In his doctoral thesis (2006), he deals with spatial and evolutionary aspects of the foundation of innovative employee start-ups. From 2000 to 2003, he was a researcher at the Centre of Technology Assessment in Baden-Württemberg and he is working as a research associate at the Institute for Applied Economic Research since March 2003.

In his current work, he focuses on the ongoing structural changes at the interfaces of firms, working environments and technological development. Examples are the correlations between transformations of work and dynamics in firm populations, the causes and consequences of the evolution of new technologies and societal trends or the significance of demographic change for the dynamics of economies and work. In recent years, Andreas Koch has been intensely engaged in new micro-level data (firms and individuals) in Germany and on the European level both in applied projects as well as from a methodological point of view. The most recent example for this field of work is the FP7-funded [MAPCOMPETE] project.

Andreas Koch holds a position as an assistant lecturer at the Department of Geosciences (Work Group Human Geography) at the University of Tübingen since 2009 and he is the editor of New Economic Papers – Economic Geography (NEP-GEO) since 2013.
