Innovation Management studies how organizations bring innovations to life successfully. A successful innovation involves all actions needed to generate creative ideas and to turn these into attractive new products, services, and business models. The Innovation Management group at RSM is a team composed of several ambitious international faculty whose research focuses on idea management, leadership in innovation, control of innovation projects, standardization and innovation strategies. We also execute large research projects in collaboration with leading organizations on sustainable innovation and on creative industries. Our research is often empirical, but quantitative modelling and qualitative methods are also applied. Doctoral students can choose to join the projects described below or elaborate their own PhD project.
