Dear All,

We would like to invite you to the second PDW on Multilevel Innovation
Networks at the Academy of Management Annual Meeting in Philadelphia. This
PDW takes place on Friday, August 1, from 1pm till 5pm in the Pennsylvania
Convention Center (room 121 A).

The purpose of the PDW is to stimulate research into the multilevel nature
of knowledge transfer and knowledge creation within and between
organizations. This year we will focus on the conceptual complexity and
methodological challenges of studying multilevel innovation networks. The
workshop starts with short presentations by six experienced scholars, who
will explain the core theoretical concepts of multilevel network research,
their own research in the area and methodology, and the applicability of
their work to future research opportunities. This will be followed by Q&A
with participants. The presenters are Teppo Felin (Oxford), Aparna Joshi
(Penn State), Thomas Moliterno (U Mass), Frank Rothaermel (Georgia Tech),
Melissa Schilling (NYU) and Jane Zhao (UKansas).

Next, to help participants learn about multilevel innovation networks
research and guide research in this domain, participants will discuss their
own experience and interests in the topic in small groups, facilitated by
the PDW presenters. The goal of this PDW is to develop a community of
scholars pursuing research on multilevel innovation networks. Please note
that the *registration deadline* for discussion groups is *June 30, 2013*.
