Announcing new Editors of Industry and Innovation 

Taylor and Francis is pleased to announce the appointment of Industry and Innovation’s new Editorship team, starting January 2022.

Vera Rocha 

Vera Rocha

Vera Rocha is an Associate Professor in Economics and Management of Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Copenhagen Business School. Vera was previously an Assistant Professor at the same Department (Strategy & Innovation) and a PostDoc in Economics of Entrepreneurship at the former Department of Innovation and Organizational Economics at Copenhagen Business School. She holds a PhD in Economics from University of Porto.

Vera’s research is at the intersection of entrepreneurship, strategic human capital, and labor market inequality. Her work has been focused on the determinants of career transitions into entrepreneurship, the causes and implications of hiring strategies as firms emerge and mature, how entrepreneurial activity can affect both individual careers and society at large, and how organizations contribute to expand or reduce labor market inequalities, often using matched employer-employee datasets. Vera’s research has been distinguished by several awards and published in leading journals such as Strategic Management Journal, Research Policy, Journal of Management Studies, and Organizational Research Methods.

Since 2022, Vera is the Principal Investigator of a large project funded by Carlsberg Foundation (Denmark) investigating multi-level pathways for integrating marginalized groups in the labor market and broader society. Vera is also co-Principal Investigator in another project funded by the ROCKWOOL Foundation (Denmark) to study questions related to individual behavior and tax evasion in the digital economy. In addition to being Co-Editor-in-Chief at Industry & Innovation, Vera also serves on the Editorial Review Board of Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal, Journal of Business Venturing, and Small Business Economics.
