***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Hello, I work with the National Research Council of Canada and we are looking into using SNA as a methodology to better understand how our institutes, programs and initiatives interact with the broader scientific community in the context of industrial cluster development, in terms of commercializing knowledge, in terms of managing or influencing network structures such as horizontal research programs, etc. I have gathered some papers and articles on SNA in the research / innovation context, but would be interested to hear if members have particular ones to recommend, views on the relevance of SNA in this context, any problems or key issues that you feel must be taken into consideration etc. I am planning on attending the Sunbelt conference and would be happy to meet with you to explain what we are looking at doing, and to hear your views.
