UCPH-DC1: Entrepreneurship and innovation management in health care

Supervisors: Prof. Anne-Laure Mention (RMIT) and Associate Prof. Carsten Nico Hjortso (UPCH) and industry mentor Dr. Marie Smed (CRD)

Project 1: The dynamics of employee-driven innovation

This project aims to enrich our understanding of employee-driven innovation and investigates how best to promote and support intrapreneurship and innovation in health care systems. The project asks questions such as: 1) What characterizes and drives employees who engage in innovation? How do they transform their ideas into value creating solutions? How, and under what conditions do employee innovators interact with the formal hospital innovation support systems and the broader ecosystem.

Project 2: Developing supporting tools for innovation

The project aims to enrich our understanding of how innovation and intrapreneurship in the health care and hospital sector can be supported by tools, heuristics and frameworks. The project will scrutinize existing and support the development of new innovation support tools. The project asks: 1) Which types of processes and tools optimize innovation processes and long-term value creation. 2) How are such processes best implemented within health care systems? 

Project 3: Understanding the health innovation ecosystem

The project aims to enrich our understanding of the practices, structures and dynamics of the wider health innovation ecosystem with a focus on development of more coherent health pathways. The project asks: 1) What characterizes the types and dynamics of processes within health sector innovation ecosystems? 2) Who are the involved actors, and what are their relationships? 3) What hinder or promote inter-organizational innovation processes?
