Research interests

Eva Boxenbaum conducts research on innovation in institutionalized contexts. In collaboration with industrial partners and international researchers, she examines how new business practices and technologies emerge, spread and are implemented in organizational practice in different industries and nations. Her work is particularly focused on how entrepreneurial individuals and organizations —who are themselves embedded in the beliefs, norms and rules that prevail in an industry or a nation – can break with established templates and generate innovations that spread and provoke sustained organizational or social change.  She is currently working on sustainable innovations in the construction industry, architecture and renewable energies.
