Research focus

The research group focuses on the study of the structure and operation of economic and social networks. Economy as a whole, markets, industries or spatial units will be analyzed as complex, dynamic, evolving and learning systems by using the theory of complex networks and generally the methods and results of network analysis. This approach is very useful in the examination of a number of phenomena when the participants' decisions and behavior during interaction are significantly influenced by their embeddedness, the system of their relations and the structural, topological and informational characteristics of these relationships. The research covers "traditional" economic issues of network industries such as network externalities and their effects on market processes or the economic issues of network infrastructure (access- and interconnection problems ...).
