Erasmus Centre for Innovation Management (ECIM)
The Erasmus Center for Innovation Management (ECIM) is a dedicated group of leading academic researchers performing theoretical and applied research in the field of innovation management.
The Netherlands has climbed from fifth to fourth place on this year’s ‘European Innovation Scoreboard’. This ranking of Europe’s frontrunners in innovation is published every year by the European Commission. Professor Jan van den Ende of Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM), has analysed the Netherlands’ performance over the years. Eight years ago, the Netherlands already scored 20% higher than the European average in the field of innovation. This has since increased to 30%, according to Van den Ende’s research.
In his dissertation ‘We Are (All) The Champions: The Effect of Status in the Implementation of Innovations’ ERIM’s Balazs Szatmari explores the effects of status in the implementation of innovations in three empirical papers which investigate both the positive and negative impact of status –status of either the project leader, the project group, or the organization.
