About the Project
Based on this Ciriello et al.’s (2019) recommendations, this research aims to establish how different constellations of people, places and time stimulate collective creativity and innovation. What different kinds of social influence exist in organisations and what is the effect of digital artefacts on social interactions and autonomous strategic behaviour? At which times and in which places do people communicate ideas?
The research will be based in the Northumbria Centre for Innovation, Regional Transformation and Entrepreneurship (iNCITE), focussing on innovation networks and smart specialisation. It is multidisciplinary, encompassing entrepreneurship and information systems, and focussed on the exploitation of social capital. A multiple case study methodology is proposed to encompass various data collection and generation methods. It will form part of the university’s major multi-disciplinary research theme ‘Digital Living’. Access to case organisations and businesses will be facilitated by the supervisory team and the successful candidate will demonstrate the potential to arrange their own access.
This project is supervised by Dr Alison Pearce.
