PhD Workshop Social Network Analysis in Management Research

On September 04, 2018 I gave a PhD workshop on “Social Network Analysis in Management Research” at the University of Gothenburg. PhD students from the Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship participated in this workshop. The workshop introduced PhD students to Social Network Analysis as a methodological approach for studying social relations among different types of actors and discussed the application of this approach in management research. A hands-on session introduced the participants to the network analysis software Pajek and enabled students to apply their knowledge of network measures acquired during the workshop.

Paper Presented at the 17th Schumpeter Society Conference

Recently I presented the project “Exploring Network Dynamics in Complex Fields of Science: Investigator Networks in Clinical Trials” at the 17th Conference of the International Joseph A. Schumpeter Society. The conference was held at Seoul National University. The paper is a joint research project with Maureen McKelvey (University of Gothenburg) and Pablo D’Este (INGENIO). Focusing on collaborative relations among investigators in phase 2 clinical trials, we explore whether the mechanisms of preferential attachment, homophily or multi-connectivity drive the endogenous formation of ties to investigators with valuable knowledge in basic and clinical research.

Paper Presentation at the TIE Conference 2017

I recently presented a paper on ‘How do networks affect knowledge generation for drug development? – A study of investigator networks, knowledge domains, and knowledge generation’ at the Annual Meeting of Technology, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship Division (TIE Kommission) of the German Academic Association for Business Research (VHB) which took place at the University of Koblenz-Landau. In this paper my co-authors Pablo D’Este (INGENIO Valencia), Maureen McKelvey (University of Gothenburg), and Anne Assmus (University of Passau) and myself analyze whether the interplay of structural holes and actors’ knowledge domains affects the production of new scientific knowledge in clinical trials.
