It was great to be back in Gothenburg last week. I visited the U-GOT KIES centre to work with Maureen McKelvey and Viktor Ström. After two years of remote interactions, I really enjoyed meeting friends and colleagues during the 11th Annual Workshop on Medical Innovation which was co-hosted by AstraZeneca. It was my pleasure to moderate the panel discussion on “Reusing Drug Compounds – Scientific and Managerial Perspectives” and to present a joint project with my colleague Marvin Hanisch on “The Specialist’s Dilemma: How Specialization Inhibits Reactivity and Innovation Responsiveness in a Crisis.” I am looking forward to working on this and other papers in the new year!
