Dr. Max Mittenzwei has joined the Innovative Regions Unit as a research fellow in July 2023 following his work as a research fellow in the Innovation Policy and Transfer Design Unit at Fraunhofer IMW since December 2021.

Before joining Fraunhofer IMW, he completed his PhD at the Chair of Economic and Social Geography of Prof. Dr. Daniel Schiller at the University of Greifswald. In the context of his PhD "From Meta to Micro, from Fuzzy to Concrete: Examining Structures of Knowledge and Innovation in the Bioeconomy", he used various data mining approaches (computer-based methods to identify patterns, trends or correlations in existing datasets) and network analyses to map the European bioeconomy and its actors. In addition, he qualitatively investigated value chains for concrete innovation drivers and barriers. At Fraunhofer IMW, he is working on various projects that mainly cover the topics of structural change, regional and location analyses, knowledge transfer and cooperation processes or innovation dynamics in terms of content and are methodologically based on recent, data-driven analytics.
