Innovation Tackling Global Challenges

Bocconi University, Milan, Italy

Funded by the European Science Foundation

This research project aimed to better understand how new technologies emerge across diverse disciplines to tackle complex problems, such as cancer or other grand challenges.


I used qualitative and quantitative research methods, and data sources such as patent, publication and interview data, which I triangulated.


As part of this project, I was also invited to participate in the OECD KnownInno initiative on knowledge networks and markets at the USPTO in Alexandria (USA) and at the OECD in Paris.

Partners: Bocconi (coordinator), OECD, Fraunhofer ISI, CNR, Copenhagen Business School, Sorbonne, CSIC, GeorgiaTech and Harvard University, among others.
