Julie Fabbri

Assistant Professor of Strategy and Innovation Management

 “ I am interested in the synergies between space and organization in the context of innovation. My research activities focused on the intersection between the recent spatial turn in the management and organization theory literature and the empirical phenomenon of the rise of new inter-company & collaborative spaces (e.g. innovation lab, makerspace, fab lab, hacker space, living lab. My main research projects deal with the materiality of organizations, open innovation management, and collective learning dynamics.

I am one of the co-founders and Vice-President of the international research network RGCS (Research Group on Collaborative Spaces – Paris, London, Montreal, Barcelona, Berlin, Amsterdam, Roma), dealing with new work practices and workplace transformations in the context of the sharing and peer-to-peer economy. I am also tutoring some startups (e.g. MakerTourNoïTourEdTech World Tour), advising some collaborative spaces (e.g. Volumes – a coworking/making/fooding space; Liberty Living Lab – a civic-tech space), and large French companies (e.g. Orange, Valeo) on their innovation labs, open innovation and user-centric management processes (e.g. crowdsourcing, design thinking).”
