|Project goals:Crossing Boundaries aims to develop, through a programme of staff exchange, a new international & multi-disciplinary research community working in exploring the processes, challenges & implications on innovation performance of knowledge & technology transfer across national boundaries. This research community will focus particularly in addressing five research questions:1. Who are the actors involved in the process of knowledge & technology transfer for the purposes of innovation across national boundaries?
2. What are the processes of knowledge & technology transfer across national boundaries & how do these differ according to the actors involved?
3. How do contextual factors (such as institutional divergence, cultural differences & geographic distance) influence the processes of knowledge & technology transfer across national boundaries?
4. How do organisational factors (such as technological capabilities & the absorptive capacity of the firm) influence the processes of knowledge & technology transfer across national boundaries?
5. What are the implications for policy & policy transfer for innovation?
|Outputs: Several Seminars; Public Presentations; Meetings|
