September 2008 – December 2008. Working with Karen Cook, Dept of Sociology
My research is aimed at innovation in inter-organizational networks with specific focus on the initial phases of the network (how do companies identify and involve other companies in an inter-organizational network?). The theoretical framework is Social Network Analysis. The project with which I will be working during my visiting scholarship at H-STAR is an inter-organizational network, the Intelligent Utility network (www.intelligentutility.dk), which is seeking to develop new business models, services and products on the basis of the current implementation of smart meters in Danish private households.
