Abstract: 
This dissertation consists of five distinct empirical papers covering two large areas of research that are rather independent from each other: the economics of ageing and the economics of innovation. The first three chapters cover the impact of intergeneration interaction on the parents of adult children. Chapter 1 explores the effects of grandchild care on grandparent labour supply. Chapter 2 on the other hand investigates the impact of grandchild care on grandparent health. Chapter 3 analyses the effect of a divorce of an adult child on the parent. The final two chapters take another direction. They evaluate the effects of research and development (R&D) promoting subsidy schemes. Chapter 4 looks at two regionally focused subsidies in the German biotech sector, while Chapter 5 investigates the effect of R&D subsidies from multiple national and international sources on small and medium sized enterprises (SME) in Thuringia.
