PROGRAMME OBJECTIVE

Innovation has become a top priority for both firms and policy makers. Consequently, scholars in management and economics are increasingly focusing their inquiring on issues related to the organization of innovation processes, the determinants of R&D investments, and open innovation strategies. In this framework, acquisitions and collaborations with other firms and organizations, including communities of users and developers, play a crucial role for firms’ innovation. 

Gaining a full understand of the aforementioned issues require linking innovation management and economics. Once, these fields developed rather independently, but now they are converging: they focus on similar problems and share models, perspectives, and methods.

Moving from these premises, this course offers a unique opportunity for PhD students to examine leading-edge issues in the innovation field in a truly inter-disciplinary fashion. During the course, students will share knowledge with classmates and lecturers, discuss seminal papers in the innovation literature, and refine their research questions. They will also examine qualitative and quantitative methods popular in innovation studies and learn how to use them for producing high quality scientific work. A secondary objective of this course is to make students acquaint with the process of academic review and publication. In addition, the course provides an excellent networking opportunity.
