REMARC hosts several projects on a number of focus areas, in collaboration with external researchers. Here are some of our special focus topics:
- The dark side of innovation research agenda. Our work on Patent Toxicity is an example of this agenda.
- Science evaluation, asymmetric information, and science integrity. Our ongoing research on predatory journals is part of this agenda.
- Climate change and finance. We conduct research to assess whether financial institutions and universal owners are contributing to combat climate change by analyzing their investment portofolios. Works on how finance contributes to a low-carbon transition are central to this area of research.
