Innovation Management

Supervisors: Prof. Tor Helge Aas (UiA) and Prof. Anne-Laure Mention (RMIT)

Option 1 Management of sustainability-oriented innovation

Project: Sustainability-oriented innovation is often challenging for firms both due to the inherent existence of many paradoxical organizational tensions, and also due to the fact that many sustainability-oriented innovations require industrial ecosystem changes. The successful candidate will conduct research to understand how firms can manage sustainability-oriented innovation that create and realize social and environmental value, in addition to economic returns.

 

Option 2 Management of digital business model innovation

Project: The use of new digital technologies enables firms to change their business models. Researchers have recently started to acknowledge that complex business model innovations often require that many actors in the ecosystem need to change their business models in a coordinated manner. The successful candidate will conduct research to understand how such complex change processes at the ecosystem level occur, and how these processes can be managed.

 

Option 3 University-Industry Cooperation for Fintech

Project: Similarly to other forms of innovation, financial innovation is increasingly resulting from knowledge sourcing and sharing across organizational boundaries. Historically, financial services industries have exhibited low levels of engagement with universities. The level of complexity and sophistication of digitally-enabled financial innovation is calling for increased cooperation with the science base. This PhD project will explore the mechanisms of such university-industry cooperation.
