Longitudinal studies on innovation are rare and the research group has access to data in terms of interviews and financial analyses from a group of manufacturing SMEs from studies taking place in 1976 and 1984. These companies were again examined in a PhD project conducted from 2001 to 2005. Eleven of the companies are still active. The purpose of the project is to complement the previous data with new interviews and financial analysis and to thereby, based on empirical data from a period of 45 years, examine how research orchestration affects innovation in manufacturing SMEs. The grant will finance a full-time PhD student for three years.
