Focus of Research
The Research Group aims at
relating theoretical and empirical research on inter-firm networks.
The focus of theoretical research is to develop a theory of inter-firm
networking which is based upon the structuration theory of Anthony
Giddens and which informs management practice as much as empirical
research. Empirical research is oriented on the genesis und management
of inter-firm networks, aiming to study their importance for economic
performance and technological development.
