My research has focused on social and responsible innovation with particular interest in the management of socio-technical networks and R&D collaboration in the EU, USA and China; the origins and evolution of technological communities in the context of emerging knowledge-based regional clusters and industrial ecosystems, as well as talent management, new product development, quality and product safety management performance. I have led and/or participated in several multi-million euros projects with world class organizations, such as CERN, Intel and Airbus.
My research axes on four inter-related themes with several sub-themes currently being advanced in collaboration with colleagues and students from around the world:
- Technology & Innovation Management
- ICT-enabled diffusion and Knowledge Management
- International Science and Technology Policy
- Doctoral education in Management & Business Studies
