The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) has awarded a €15,000 grant to Drs. Rick Aalbers (principal investigator, FINDER project) and Armand Smits (assistant professor Radboud University). The researchers, both employed by the Nijmegen School of Management at Radboud University, will investigate business models in creative industries for complexity and improvement potentialities.
This project will employ qualitative comparative analysis, an innovative research technique that systematically assesses combinations of cases in order to find complex interactions and relationships. In doing so, the grant enables the researchers to build an inclusive knowledge-generating collaboration, using contemporary techniques, between the research and business sectors through dynamic exploration.
Finally, this project will contribute to CLICKNL‘s Knowledge and Innovation Agenda 2018-2021.
