Department of Organization
My current research concerns the ways in which organizational processes shape research and innovation trajectories and, in particular, how these trajectories are configured in collaborative relationships between industry and academia. Broadly anchored in organizational studies (OS), my research is informed by science and technology studies (STS). It offers theoretical and policy-related contributions to the OS field, and is of direct relevance to the Danish government’s strategic interest in optimizing the effects of R&D investment in the innovation system(s) in Denmark. I engage in international collaboration with colleagues at the University of York (UK) and is currently extending my scope of study to comparative analyzes of inter-organizational dynamics within, and across, industrial sectors.
