PDW Description

The purpose of this professional development workshop is to stimulate research into the multilevel nature of knowledge transfer and knowledge creation within and between organizations. While research has examined the influence of social networks on innovation at different levels of analysis – the micro, meso and macro - we know little about how these levels interact. Specifically, an understanding of the micro-foundations of higher-level innovation networks is largely missing. This workshop aims to bring together doctoral students and faculty from multiple topical domains who share a common interest in innovation networks and who wish to contribute to innovation network research, in general, and multilevel innovation networks research, in particular. The workshop will consist of two modules: (1) short presentations by experienced scholars who are investigating the multilevel nature of innovation networks, followed by general Q and A; and (2) small group discussions of participants’ interests in and research efforts on the topic of multilevel innovation networks, facilitated by PDW presenters.
