My research interests include technology & knowledge transfer, open innovation, sustainable development innovation, management of entrepreneurial ventures, and management of RBV.

Research Overview

My research is focusing on the relation between open innovation and technology transfer in the entrepreneur ventures and their processes of commercialization through the new product development. Focused on this and supported by theory and the resource-based and dynamic capabilities, I am studying to what extent the relations between external sources and companies favour the innovation and commercialization of products and improve general performance of the enterprises.
