For the fourth year, we are excited to organize a session on Networked Innovation at Sunbelt.

Session description: Innovation is no longer the property of stand-alone corporate or government R&D laboratories. Rather, it is the property of networks, where innovation occurs at the interstices of organisations, large and small, public and private, and the individuals nested within. These networks operate at intra- and inter-organisational, regional, national and international levels  this is networked innovation. However, many questions about networks and innovation remain unanswered. The purpose of this session is to present the newest insights into the drivers, structural features, and consequences of innovation networks at different organizational levels. Examples include:

* Interactions between intra- and inter-organizational networks for innovation
* Network dynamics and innovation diffusion
* University-industry collaboration
* Networks and commercialization
* Innovation in public sector firms
* Barriers to innovation

We welcome empirical contributions that tackle such issues, using various data sources and a variety of methodological approaches.

Organizers: Dean Lusher, James Coutinho (both at Swinburne University of Technology) and Julia Brennecke (University of Liverpool)

Deadline for submitting your abstract: February 1st, 2019, 23:00 (EDT-UTC-5:00).
