Maryann Feldman

Public Policy Professor Maryann Feldman has been honored with a global entrepreneurship research award for her work on “the geography of innovation” — where industries cluster and why.

Feldman is the Heninger Distinguished Professor in the College and a senior fellow at UNC’s Frank Hawkins Kenan Institute of Private Enterprise.

The award is given by the Swedish Entrepreneurship Forum and the Research Institute of Industrial Economics. It is the leading international honor in entrepreneurship research, with a prize of 100,000 euros.

Feldman has studied a variety of industries such as the pharmaceutical and biotech sector — researching academic entrepreneurship, university-industry relations, intellectual property rights and technology entrepreneurship. She is currently consulting with the U.S. Department of Commerce.

Howard Aldrich, Kenan Professor and chair of UNC’s department of sociology, won the award in 2000.
