DRUID – Danish Research Unit in Industrial Dynamics - was established in 1995, based on a funding from the Danish Social Science Research Council (SSF) and the Danish Ministry of Industry. Gradually DRUID has evolved into a large international network in industrial dynamics supported by two annual conferences and an internationally well-recognized electronic working paper series. Professor Mette Præst Knudsen is a member of the executive committee representing SDU.

The DRUID Winter Conference was designed to provide an opportunity for DRUID PhD students, as well as for PhD students from the international network, to present their work to peers, DRUID senior faculty and invited international scholars, who have been invited to present their work in plenary sessions. The DRUID Summer conference became devoted to a specific theme of interest to DRUID. The two conferences continue to be central components of DRUID’s activities. Read more about the DRUID history.

DRUID is associated with the journal Industry and Innovation published by Routledge. Industry and Innovation is an international refereed journal presenting high-quality original scholarship of the dynamics of industries and innovation. Interdisciplinary in nature, Industry and Innovation is informed by, and contributes to, advancing the theoretical frontier within economics, management, sociology, and economic geography.
