Developing theoretically rigorous and managerially relevant research on innovation management
The young academics workshop is organized by CIYA (Continuous Innovation Young Academics) and is conceived as a way to support the career development of young scholars in the field of continuous innovation by teaching and sharing with them major skills needed in an academic career.
The 2021 CINet Young Academics (CIYA) workshop is targeted at young academics such as assistant professors, post-doc researchers and PhD students in the last year of their studies, interested in strengthening their skills to design, program and manage a research program with high impact on multiple dimensions and maximizing the likelihood of being funded by public or private institutions, or companies.
In the first years of their academic life, scholars are often called to change the way their research life is planned and conducted. During their PhD studies, young scholars acquire skills to design and conduct rigorous and relevant research projects. However, when the stage of their post-doctoral research career life begins, new challenges arise related to:
The balance of such activities related to education, research and knowledge transfer depends on the capability to properly identify and assess ”pathways to impact” along the various stages of a multi-year research program. To help participants start building this capability, the CIYA workshop is aimed at:
Paolo Neirotti is professor at the Department of Management and Production Engineering of Politecnico di Torino, Italy. With reference to the resurgence of the manufacturing industry in the Western world, Paolo’s interest mainly deals with how lean and high-performance work systems can find new and more sustainable ways of application through the use of new digital technologies on the shop floor such as the Internet of Things, Big Data and Collaborative Robotics. His research has been published in Industrial and Corporate Change, the International Journal of Human Resource Management, New Technology, Work and Employment, and Information & Management.
