Dear AoM TIM Community,
As an AoM TIM member, I would like to share the following text to disseminate the launch of this Special Issue in Technovation Elsevier Journal in the AoM TIM newsletter.
CfP Technovation Journal [IF: 11.4 / ABS: 3] – Special Issue "From Science Management to Innovation Management: New forms of science-industry relations and knowledge transfer" [Deadline: 01st October 2023]
The study of the relations between science and industry and associated opportunities and challenges relating to knowledge transfer, have long been discussed in the innovation management literature (e.g., Shepard, 1956, Nelson, 1962; Mansfield, 1980; Link, 1981; Gilbert & Cordey-Hayes, 1996). However, in recent years, the landscape of science-industry relations and associated knowledge transfer practices have been subjected to profound changes (e.g., Arora et al., 2018; Zahra et al., 2018) requiring a renewed examination of long-standing concepts. The aim of this Call for Papers (CfP) for this Special Issue (SI) is to collate high quality research which revitalizes our understanding of the topic of science-industry relations and knowledge transfer within the current innovation management landscape.
We welcome conceptual and empirical papers which span all types of methodologies (e.g., qualitative, mix-method, quantitative) and provide novel insights into new organizational forms, practices, policies, and their consequences for science and innovation. We also encourage research which seeks to not only refine and extend existing theory, but which builds new theory, through drawing on other disciplines and/or combining theoretical lenses to advance our understanding of the latter phenomenon.
Possible topics should fall within the spectrum of four key thematic areas of inquiry, which underpin the aim of this special issue:
- New forms, spaces, and practices of academic engagement with industry;
- New perspectives on industrial research & corporate laboratories;
- New actors and forms of organizations for science-industry relations;
- Science-Industry relations and knowledge transfer for Grand Challenges.
Paper Submission Deadline: 1 October 2023
