David Audretsch, a professor in the O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs, was one of five scholars named a Clarivate Citation Laureate in economics Wednesday
Clarivate, a company with a history in research and innovation, released its annual list of researchers likely to win the Nobel Prize. Clarivate has a history of identifying “Nobel class” research, IU said in a press release. Those on the list are named Citation Laureates by Clarivate.
Audretsch is one of 16 researchers worldwide to be given the title this year. Only five of the 16 were honored in the field of economics.
“This deserved achievement is a reflection of an extraordinary researcher and highly valued member of the Indiana University scholarly community,” IU President Pamela Whitten said in the press release.
Audretsch is the author of dozens of books and the recipient of multiple honorary doctorates from universities in Germany and Sweden, according to his CV. Siân Mooney, dean of O’Neill, congratulated Audretsch on the recognition.
“Focusing on the links between entrepreneurship, government policy, innovation, economic development and global competitiveness, David's work has earned the attention of his colleagues around the world, and we're proud of this latest recognition from Clarivate,” she said.
