Topics for supervision

Bachelor theses

I am happy to supervise empirical theses in the fields of industrial organisation, innovation economics and international trade. Below I put some suggestions for inspiration but do not hesitate to get in touch if you have an idea for a topic that falls within these fields.

Some general themes
- Business dynamism: firm entry and exit, job creation, job reallocation
- Firm-level drivers of aggregate productivity growth
- Competition, mark-ups, profitability, industry concentration
- Monopsony, labour market concentration, buyer concentration
- Impact of public funding for science, technology and innovation

Some more specific topics
- Estimating the impact of the electronic sales registry (EET) on firm exit
- Estimating the publication impact of scientific grants by the Czech Health Research Council (regression discontinuity design)
- Impact of R&D grants for firms on innovation
- Impacts of within-route railway competition: Case of the Czech Republic

I strongly encourage you to write your thesis in English.
