PHD PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Industry 4.0 as an enabler of innovation ecosystem emergence
The digital technologies behind Industry 4.0 enable new actors, new structures, and dynamics in the innovation ecosystems of industrial players. This project combines a technology-based perspective on the generative potential of digital technologies (including new machine-to-machine possibilities) with the innovation ecosystems perspective.
The project aims to combine different possible sources and types of data to explore and model the emergence of new ecosystems and the transformation of existing innovation ecosystems. The methods and theoretical perspectives will be determined with the PhD student, but is anticipated to be possible to use advanced data analysis methods (including ML/AI). The ambition is to explore a combination of methods that help to understand the why’s, how’s, and to what extent are the technologies behind Industry 4.0 transforming what we know about innovation ecosystems emergence and evolution.
The project includes secondments, travel to doctoral schools and conferences.
