How do personal research networks influence innovation? The biomedical context

DRUID Society Conference 2014 on Entrepreneurship - Organization - Innovation
To investigate network configurations that are most conducive to knowledge creation:
-Multiple types of network configurations : e . g . structure and composition
-Multiple types of knowledge outcomes : e . g . scientific and technological ... mixed findings and unsolved conceptual puzzles
Networks in the context of biomedical research:
Translational Research has become a high policy priority with the aim to improve healthcare by strengthening research collaborations between basic and clinical scientists... but there is a lack of consensus about whether and to what extent current initiatives to support Translational Res . have been really effective
Improve our understanding of how (biomedical) research networks work
