Field of work:

My research at sfs was about the dynamics of the co-innovation process analyzing the interactions between multiple actors in such processes. Co-innovation is seen as an interactive joint open innovation process of value co-creation carried out by multiple actors, including customers (Bitzer & Bijman, 2015; Chesbrough et al, 2014; Lee et al, 2012; Piller & West, 2014; Prahalad & Ramaswamy, 2004). The results of co-innovation can be both in terms of market solutions, such as a new product, technology, service, or even a new business model, or regarding social market focusing in solutions to help society solve issues that affect the population, the environment, development of regions, migration and so on. It is because the central point of co-innovation is the value co-created by multiple actors involved in the process and not only the revenue reached with the innovation itself. Such actors could be firms, government, civil society, not-for-profit organizations, individuals, and any other actor that has some interesting and aims to get value from the co-innovation process. Based on that, I analyzed the interactions between multiple actors involved in social innovation initiatives mapped by the SI-DRIVE project in Europe.
