Social Networks, Innovation and Entrepreneurship

The Social Networks, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship Research Team is a group of scholars focusing on knowledge creation and recombination, resource acquisition, learning, and collaboration at the individual, organizational, and regional level.

Our researchers work on three themes:

  • Social networks of individuals: how the networks of relationships influence outcomes such as performance, innovation, career choices, and turnover. They also research the antecedents of network ties and what drives networks to change over time.
  • Innovation and Problem Solving Networks in Organizations: how innovation and creation is fostered by organizations.
  • Formation and Evolution of Regional Clusters and Entrepreneurial Networks: the emergence and historical evolution of regional clusters. How entrepreneurs develop their networks to accrue legitimacy and how this is associated with the inflow of resources to their projects.
