Innovation and late market entry
This research stream focuses on the dynamics of sequential technology competitions in which new technologies and new market entrants displace established technologies and firms. In particular, the research will focus on the innovation strategies used by new technology firms to overcome the first mover advantages of established firms. PhDs working in this research stream will develop new theories and understandings that build on past research on network externalities, technological lock-in, and sequential technology competitions. Potential examples of late market entry include historical studies of Japanese car and motorbike manufacturers, and current examples such as digital cameras and mobile phones.
Services innovation in private and public sectors (incl. Health)
This research stream addresses the impact of services innovation on the economy, and the nature of innovation in services. We are looking for PhDs for a number of themes: (1) innovation in public health services, (2) knowledge-intensive business services (KIBS), and (3) innovation networks of public-private institutions. There is a unique opportunity for PhD candidates to work with the UK Community Innovation Survey (CIS) database.
Environmentally friendly technologies
This research stream focuses on the development and diffusion of technologies that are more environmentally friendly. Here there is particularly important role for the state and for public sector institutions in the innovation process. Government, along with firms and consumers, is key part of the selection environment. Public sector institutions are also an important source of innovations. PhDs working in this research stream will need to integrate government in order to develop insights into the generation, production and delivery of new, environmentally friendly technologies.
