This special issue aims to deepen our understanding of collaboration networks, organizations, and innovation, focusing on the integrative perspectives from various levels of analysis, including the levels of groups, organizations, regions, and countries.
Continuous technological innovation is one of the main goals of firms. In particular, the intensive global competition and rapidly changing technology trends force firms to focus on innovative activities. In this situation, firms tend to choose to collaborate with external entities rather than pursue internal development as a strategic option. This is mainly because collaborations can provide potential advantages, such as access to external resources, the utilization of economies of scale and scope, synergistic effects through complementary knowledge sharing, and a reduction in risks. Interestingly, the emergence of the open innovation concept reflects recent trends focussing on innovation through collaboration. In addition, the successful achievement of the national innovation system is the result of cooperation among many organizations from industry, governments, and academia.
Collaboration has been an important topic in areas including (but not restricted to) strategic management, technology management, organizational behavior, economic development, entrepreneurship, international business, and knowledge management. This Special Issue aims to cover all aspects of collaboration networks, organizations, and innovation both academically and practically. All review, conceptual, and empirical research—both qualitative and quantitative—are welcomed.
