INNOVATION NETWORKS – Summer School

This course introduced the state of the art in international innovation research:

1. By presenting results from the empirical analysis of innovative actors such as universities, SMEs, and MNEs while focussing on their contributions to the innovation process
 

2. By illuminating the systemic context of innovation with emphasis on national and sectoral systems of innovation in an evolutionary framework
 

3. By discussing the tools and methods with which innovation networks in complex social systems can be successfully investigated to extend and apply our knowledge of them most effectively

Theoretically, it provided systematic knowledge on the nature and characteristics of innovation processes to keep up with the complexity, the non-linearities and the self-organising features of innovation performance. Further demonstrating the embeddedness of socio-economic innovation research in complexity science and computational approaches. Practically, it identified points of intervention and support for innovation and for collaborative networking with partners and stakeholders.
